U2 Tease Short Film for ‘Song for Someone’ Starring Woody Harrelson

U2 are going a bit further than your average band when it comes to the visual for one of their new songs, creating a short film to accompany their track “Song for Someone” from their latest album Songs of Innocence.

What’s the difference between this and, say, a new music video? Generally, length: expect this to be longer than the average music video. The short is directed by Vincent Haycock, who has helmed videos for MadonnaCalvin HarrisPaul McCartney and Lana Del Rey. His work to date has been big, broad and sweeping in scope but not necessarily strong on storytelling, so this should be a shift in pace.

Woody and Zoe Harrelson are set to star in the project, with a press release from Interscope Records saying the former plays “a man being released from prison after years of incarceration.”

To precede its debut, a trailer has been released for the short.
