The first two music videos for songs off U2’s Songs of Innocence have been soaked in color, but “Song for Someone” avoids vivid hues in favor of black-and-white images of landscapes and Bono performing.

Illustrator and photographer Matt Mahurin, who previously worked with U2 on 1993’s “Love is Blindness,” directed the video, and called it a “true joy” to work with the band again in a statement. Bono, though, is the only band member actually featured in the video — his parts, most of them set against a backdrop of moving clouds, were filmed in Malibu in early 2015.

Watch the video, which premiered exclusively on Facebook Thursday, below.
