A video footage showing the filming process of U2's music video for single "Magnificent" has come out. It gives a sneak peek at what will be seen in the band's forthcoming video, showing them making a performance inside a local riad in Fez, Morocco.

In addition to providing fans with the video's sneak peek, the footage also follows the band's members while they are walking out for sight-seeing in the North African city. Along with their crew, they mingle with traders in the market and even play soccer with local kids.

"Magnificent" music video is expected to make its debut on Tuesday, May 5 on Yahoo!. The soon-to-be-released video is directed by Alex Courtez, who previously helped the band making "Get on Your Boots" video.

"Magnificent" itself is the second single coming from U2's 2009 studio album "No Line on the Horizon". Originally titled "French Disco", the song penned by U2, Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois revolves around "two lovers holding on to each other and trying to turn their life into worship."
