After a 30-second leak of U2’s first No Line on the Horizon single “Get On Your Boots” emerged early this weekend, the band decided just to stream the whole track in its entirety on their Website.
The verses are similar to Elvis Costello’s “Pump It Up,” with Bono singing, “You free me from the dark dream, Candy floss ice cream, All our kids are screaming, But the ghosts aren’t real” in a similar cadence to Costello’s This Year’s Model hit.
“Get On Your Boots” was supposed to become available digitally on February 15th, but lo and behold it’s for sale on iTunes right now.
oh. I guess they were flogging product at the Lincoln Memorial the other day.
