U2 won the award for the Best Original Song at the Golden Globes last night (12.01.14) in California.
Guitarist The Edge admitted the band - consisting also of Bono, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr - had started working for Mandela, who died last month aged 95, and the anti-Apartheid movement when they were teenagers in the 1970s.
He said during the acceptance speech: ''It has taken 35 years to write this song.''
Bono added: ''This really is personal, very very personal. This man turned our life upside down, right side up. A man who refused to hate but he thought love would do a better job. We wrote a love song because its kind of what's extraordinary about the film. It's a dysfunctional love story.''
Meanwhile, U2 spent the festive season in the studio recording their new album, which has been produced by Danger Mouse, best known for being half of Gnarls Barkley with Cee Lo Green as well as producing The Black Keys and Norah Jones.
Adam said previously of the as-yet-untitled record: ''I think it's a bit of a return to U2 of old, but with the maturity, if you like, of the U2 of the last 10 years. It's a combination of those two things and it's a really interesting hybrid.''
The new album is set for release in April.
