Get on Your Boots!

U2 debuted their new single “Get on Your Boots” from their upcoming album No Line on the Horizon earlier today on a Dublin radio station. I’ve posted it below for your listening enjoyment.

So, what do you think?

U2 – Get on Your Boots

  1. Hmm… It’s very different, yet very U2ish… Their last album was the same way though – it grew on me the more I heard it, but the first listen was odd. This one definately has a harder sound from Edge, which I like but I’m not used to…

  2. it’ll grow on me. i just really don’t want them to turn into the friggin’ rolling stones and be in their 60’s wiggling around on stage. u2 is my favorite band, but i want them to go out with some dignity.

    and seriously, bono was annoying me @ the obama thing. you’ve the “obama – politician, pop icon or both” thing linked over to the right, and this whole celebritizing of him is so frustrating. he’s going to president. will someone please make oprah stop!

  3. All I could think of the first time I heard it was how the verses remind me of a cross between The Escape Club’s “Wild Wild West” and Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire”.

    I think the Edge’s guitar riff – and the distorted guitar sound – is very reminiscent of “The Fly” from Achtung Baby.

    The ending has a very “Vertigo” thing going no.

    I like it fine. Not their strongest single, but good enough to maintain my excitement level for the album release.

    @Tim: Save it for tomorrow buddy. 😉 I’ll be sure to post something once he’s sworn in.

    Back to the music.
