U2 – Get On Your Boots

26 Jan

Bono and co are back. They’ve announced that their new album ‘No Line On The Horizon’ will be released in March this year.

This is the first single to be lifted off the record. I will be honest, I really like U2. Yes, I know they have made a lot of naff music (” a mole diggin’ in a hole” anyone?) but at the same time, they are one of if not the best live bands I have ever seen and they have also made some amazing music in the last 30 years (don’t ask me to make a list, it’ll take me all day).  

‘Get On Your Boots’ doesn’t sound like “classic U2” it has to be said. It doesn’t come close to Where The Streets Have No Name, Bad or Sunday Bloody Sunday. In all honesty, it sounds a bit rock by numbers. Much like Elevation and Vertigo have done from previous albums. I won’t take it as a sign that the album will sound anything like this however. This is probably just easing us in.

They will no doubt be touring in the summer and it’s something that I can admit to being very excited about.

Anyway, here it is:
