U2's 'Ordinary Love' lyric video pays tribute to Nelson Mandela - Watch

U2 has released a lyrics video for their new song, "Ordinary Love." The track, which appears on the soundtrack to "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom," is the band's first new song in over three years.

The band, who consider themselves friends of Nelson Mandela, agreed to write a song for the movie after being asked by Harvey Weinstein if they would be involved. A snippet of the track first appeared in the trailer for the film, which stars Idris Elba as Mandela.

In the video a painting of Mandela is created, paying further tribute to the former South African president. Keep your eyes peeled for a Bono cameo in there as well.
