U2’s taking a different approach with their latest version of a music video. Instead of releasing a traditional vid on YouTube, Vevo or even MTV, the band will drop a short film for the track, “Song for Someone,” via SundanceTV. The short will debut on Thursday night right after the Rectify season 3 premiere.

The video, which now has a teaser you can watch below, will star Woody Harrelson as a man being released from jail. According to SundanceTV, his daughter Zoe Harrelson will also appear, while Vincent Haycock directed.

“Song for Someone” appears on U2’s most recent album, Songs of Innocence, which the band is currently promoting on tour.
