U2 has debuted an official lyric video for its new song "Ordinary Love," which was written for the soundtrack of the upcoming Nelson Mandela biopic, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom .  The stylized clip uses a number of cinematic effects to show the words of the tune being written and painted, or simply appearing, on a variety of objects and surfaces.

In one brief segment, Bono is seen holding his fists up in front of him, showing that the words "fight you" are seen written on his knuckles.  The camera then pulls back to show that his fists are positioned between wooden boards on which other words are written, thereby completing the lyric "I can't fight you anymore."

Another part of the video uses stop motion photography to show a painting of Mandela in front of a South African flag appearing on the side of a weathered building.  The clip can be viewed now on U2.com and on the band's official Facebook page .

As previously reported, a limited-edition 10-inch vinyl disc that features "Ordinary Love" and a remixed version of the 2009 U2 song "Breath" will be released on November 29 as part of this year's Black Friday Record Store Day event.  Billboard.com recently revealed that U2's next studio album will be released in April.  The Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom soundtrack, meanwhile, is scheduled to hit stores on December 10, according to Amazon.com.
