U2 have posted a lyric video online for new track Ordinary Love.

The song is a standalone track which features on the soundtrack to upcoming Nelson Mandela biopic Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom.

The film stars Idris Elba (The Wire, Luther, Thor) as the iconic politician and follows him from his childhood through to his inauguration as the first democratically elected president of South Africa.

The film is due to be released in the US next week and over here in January.

U2 wrote Ordinary Love specifically for the film. We'd already heard a snippet from the film's trailer but last night the band posted it in full on Facebook.
