Brooklyn-based artist Oliver Jeffers, a former student of Hazelwood Integrated College, has designed the cover of a limited edition 10-inch vinyl pressing of new U2 track, Ordinary Love.

The record, released on November 29, features Oliver’s striking portrait of former South African President Nelson Mandela.

Oliver also joined forces with US artist Mac Premo to make the lyric video for Ordinary Love, which features in the film Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom.
