U2 – “Song For Someone” Video (Version 2)

The video for U2’s “Song For Someone” off their new album Songs Of Innocence was widely publicized: It was teased, billed as a short film, and starred Woody Harrelson. But apparently they wanted to make a more traditional Bono-in-the-wilderness version of it for posterity’s sake. So now we’ve got just that, a beautifully shot black-and-white clip that features a series of images by illustrator and photographer Matt Mahurin. It’s visually stunning and perfectly accompanies the song’s lonely message. Watch below.

If you haven’t manually removed Songs Of Innocence from your iTunes, it’s probably still in there at this very moment.
