U2 Release First New Song In Three Years

U2 have released "Ordinary Love," the first new cut from the band in three years. The song will be featured in the upcoming Nelson Mandela biopic, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

So far the song has been listenable only in the trailer to the film, which stars Idris Elba (The Wire) in the titular role.

During a recent interview on Irish radio, bassist Adam Clayton dished on the band's latest recording sessions:

"We're in the studio. We're trying to get these 12 songs absolutely right and get them finished by the end of November, and then we can kind of enjoy Christmas," he began.

"I think it's a bit of a return to U2 of old, but with the maturity, if you like, of the U2 of the last 10 years. It's a combination of those two things and it's a really interesting hybrid."
