Free Download: New U2 Music, on Sunday
Starting on Sunday 2/2 at 5pm, iTunes will have a free download of their new single "Invisible."  The free download will only be available until Midnight on Monday 2/3, so you have to hop on it fast.

Here's the backstory.
(RED), U2 and Bank of America Partner to Fight AIDS

Partnership will deliver more than $10 million to fight AIDS and launch with free download of new U2 song debuting during the big game
 
 
(RED), U2 and Bank of America today announced a partnership that will generate more than $10 million to fight AIDS. Details are available at www.bankofamerica.com/RED.
 
The partnership will kick off with a commercial during the big gamel, (Sunday February 2) that will feature U2 performing a new song, “Invisible.” The song will be available as a limited edition release on iTunes for free download during the game and for the following 24 hours. For every download during that timeframe, Bank of America will donate $1, up to $2 million total, to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, which provides life-saving HIV/AIDS treatment, testing and prevention services to tens of millions of people in the world’s poorest countries.
 
(RED) has already generated more than $240 million for the Global Fund since being founded in 2006 by U2 lead singer Bono and Bobby Shriver in order to drive corporate donations to the fight against AIDS. The additional funding from Bank of America will help (RED) surpass a quarter billion dollars raised.
 
Bono said, "Bank of America coming on as a (RED) partner to help the Global Fund's efforts to eliminate AIDS is great news.  It's the kind of game-changing influence that will not just deliver millions of dollars but raise consciousness and keep public pressure on putting an end to this devastating pandemic which has already taken the lives of 35 million people.  And just in...the bank's commitment of $10 million has resulted in the Gates Foundation, SAP and Africa's Motsepe Family matching for a total of $22 million.  Incredible."
 
Key to the success of this initiative will be raising awareness among Bank of America’s vast customer base and more than 240,000 employees, and providing opportunities for them to take action at this critical moment in the global effort to eradicate mother-to-child transmission of HIV by 2015. Bank of America serves one in two U.S. households with a network of approximately 5,100 retail banking offices and 16,300 ATMs, has one of the most visited websites in the world, and more than 30 million online banking users and 14 million mobile users.
 
Brian Moynihan, CEO, Bank of America, said, “Just as we dedicate all of our resources to serving customers and clients in the U.S. and around the world, we can
 
bring these capabilities to (RED) and the global health community in the fight against AIDS. Most importantly, we’re encouraging our customers and employees to join the fight.”
 
(RED) funds are fighting AIDS in eight African countries – Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania and Zambia – and are used to support HIV/AIDS grants which provide treatment, testing and prevention and care services, with a focus on ending mother-to-child transmission of HIV and achieving an AIDS-free generation. Of the more than $240 million generated by (RED), 100 percent has gone directly to the Global Fund for on-the-ground services, with no overhead taken out by (RED). (RED) and its partners – from Bank of America, to Starbucks, Apple and more – are united in a global push to end mother-to-child transmission of the deadly HIV virus by 2015, in accordance with the UN Millennium Development Goals
 
Mark Dybul, executive director, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, said, “We’d like to thank Bank of America, (RED) and U2 for this innovative partnership to deliver much-needed funds and awareness to our fight to eliminate AIDS. This partnership will have a tremendous impact over the coming years.”

Free Download: "Waking Up To You" by John The Conqueror
Artist: John The Conqueror
Song: "Waking Up To You"
Album: The Good Life

"As folks get older, they begin to see the mistakes they've made," Pierre Moore tells Rolling Stone. "This song isn't about one woman. It's about every relationship I've ruined because I thought sleeping around would make me happy. A few years go, I woke up realizing that I was never satisfied and I caused all my own problems. This song is about that moment."

Free Download: "Warm Winds" by Outlands
Artist: Outlands
Song: "Warm Winds"
Album: Love is as Cold as Death

"We recorded 'Warm Winds' in the middle of a cold Virginia winter," Mark Arciaga tells Rolling Stone. "It's about letting love be the catalyst to move forward. The song was written about these lush Cocteau Twins piano chords, which we ended up reworking and recording on a grand piano to give the song more warmth, and we brought it our friend Kevin Knight to sing some sexy lower background vocals. Those Jessie Ware-inspired harmonies are what really gives that song an extra layer of sensuousness."

Free Download: "Graffiti" by Maggie Champan
Artist: Maggie Chapman
Song: "Graffiti"
Album: Maggie Chapman

"I've always been fascinated by graffiti art. Growing up, my older brother and I would watch vandalized trains pass by, and he would point out which paintings had been done by the same person," Maggie Chapman tells Rolling Stone. "I had just gone through a breakup with a guy who was a painter when the title 'Graffiti' popped into my head. He was so talented and I was mesmerized with how he could bring things to life through his art. Even though the song is not about him, I was visually inspired and wanted to paint a picture with words in this song. That vivid, colorful, passionate love that has the power to make or break us, to taint our hearts or turn them into works of art."

Free Download: "Magic Hour" by The Tontons
Artist: The Tontons
Song: "Magic Hour"
Album: The Make Out King and Other Stories of Love

"'Magic Hour' is named after a bar in New York's lower east side," Asli Omar tells Rolling Stone. "The actual name of the bar is "The Magician," which is something I only realized after writing the song. The song basically describes the final week of my relationship which kind of reached a head at this particular bar.

Free Download: "Man on Fire" by Charlie Greene
Artist: Charlie Greene
Song: "Man on Fire"
Album: Charlie Greene

"'Man on Fire' [is] kind of a lyrical cuspidor," Charlie Greene tells Rolling Stone. "Some simple music that became a home for some orphaned ideas that couldn't take shelter in another song. A manger for stranger phrases that were told there was no room at the inn for their kind. It's the wail of a weirdo trying to explain himself and failing spectacularly. It's also just some good hillbilly shit that's fun to play."

Free Download: "Real Life Thing" by Jake Troth
Artist: Jake Troth
Song: "Real Life Thing"
Album: Double Black Diamond

"'Real Life Thing' is a result of me trying to blend classic music with contemporary topics, like internet dating," Jake Troth tells Rolling Stone. "Sadly, some people feel more comfortable texting and emailing than speaking face to face. I prefer the real thing until the connection is clearer."

Free Download: "Two Over Ten" by Ducky
Artist: Ducky
Song: "Two Over Ten"
Album: Two Over Ten (Single)

"'Two Over Ten' is about the fight with something or someone coming after a part of yourself, and the feeling of giving in," Morgan Neiman tells Rolling Stone. "The title is actually a reference to the symbol 2/10, used during the Great Depression. It means, 'hush, there are thieves about!'"

Free Download: "Shame (That's Nice Remix)" by All The Colours
Artist: All The Colours
Song: "Shame (That's Nice Remix)"
Album: All The Colours

"It's a song about the dangers of being a pop success and trying to stay true to your art," Josh Moriarty tells Rolling Stone. "Inspired by a few key seconds in an interview with Michael Jackson at his mansion in the 80s, just watching the music completely flow through him."

Free Download: "Oh Well" by Pete Francis
Artist: Pete Francis
Song: "Oh Well"
Album: Immodal Implozego

"'Oh Well' is a wild escape into the imagination," Pete Francis tells Rolling Stone. "It's about the attempts to be creative, or the attempts to try anything at all, when failure can happen or big succcess can happen. It's about the soul's resilience, and struggle to balance humor in the often agonizing, yet compleling, journey of life."

Free Download: "All the While" by Barzin

Artist: Barzin
Song: "All The While"
Album: To Live Alone In That Long Summer

"At the heart of it, the song is about the desire for change," Barzin Hosseini tells Rolling Stone. "More specifically, it's about our efforts, big or small, to regain something that has been lost. Through various means - art, sex, drugs, meditation, what have you - we are constantly trying to experience the everday in a way that is new. And although we fail at it most of the time, there are small, flickering moments, when suddenly life enters our heart."

Free Download: "Waya Waya" by KiT (Kuenta i Tambu)
Artist: KiT (Kuenta i Tambu)
Song: Waya Waya
Album: Tambutronic

"We made this track together with Estonian producer Bert on beats," Roel Calister tells Rolling Stone. "Since his first release on Man Recordings we became big fans of his sound, and thought it would be a perfect fit with ours. 'Waya Waya' is the result: traditional tambu drums and rhythms from Curacao combined with ear piercing synths and uplifting caribbean carnival vocals. Of course, we had to add the deep and nasty sub kicks for which Bert is known."
