After much teasing, U2 will finally offer the first new taste of their forthcoming album next Sunday during the Super Bowl.

As Billboard reports, after U2 airs an ad in the Super Bowl, you’ll be able to download “Invisible” for free on iTunes, thanks to a partnership with Bank of America. You’ll then have 24 hours to get the first single from U2’s 13th studio album totally gratis.

To sweeten the deal, for each of the song’s first two million downloads, BoA will donate one dollar to (RED), an AIDS charity co-founded by Bono. The bank is also pledging a guaranteed $8 million to the charity.

“It’s not what you expect,” said Bono of “Invisible” last week. “It’s not your typical love song.” According to the L.A. Times back in December, “Invisible” is “an anthemic number about leaving one’s hometown.”

The song, and the upcoming album on which it’ll be featured, is produced by Danger Mouse. Per Bono, June has been tossed around a potential release date for the still-titled LP, the follow-up to 2009’s No Line On The Horizon.
