U2’s next album won’t be with us until spring 2014, but they have a new song on "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom," the new biopic starring Idris Elba and Naomie Harris. The band wrote “Ordinary Love” after they saw early cuts of the film.

“We are delighted to have U2 write an original song for 'Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom',” says producer Anant Singh.

“This is really fitting as U2 has always been a staunch supporter of Madiba. As a board member of Madiba’s 46664 anti-AIDS initiative together with U2, I was fortunate to be with them when we visited Robben Island together, accompanied by Madiba.”

Here's the trailer for the film, featuring "Ordinary Love."
