U2 might not be playing the Super Bowl halftime show, but the iconic band just stole the spotlight all the same.

Taking a cue from Beyoncé, Bono and company used a commercial in the first quarter to officially release a new song, “Invisible,” on iTunes. It gets better: Not only was the track coproduced by Danger Mouse, it’s helping raise money for (Red), an organization dedicated to fighting AIDS. Bank of America has pledged to donate $1 for each download, with a cap of $2 million.

But you have to act quickly: According to USA Today, “Invisible” will be pulled on Tuesday from iTunes.

U2’s new album, on which “Invisible” is scheduled to appear, is expected to be released this summer.
