(no subject)

Did you all see U2 at the Obama concert a few hours ago?! I think they were amazing, I loved every single minute of it :-)

Now, as GOYB will have its premiere tomorrow, there is news at u2.com:


Premiere: 'Get On Your Boots'

Get On Your Boots, the first single from No Line on the Horizon, will make its debut tomorrow morning - on radio and on U2.Com. Here's the details.

Irish radio presenter Dave Fanning, a champion of the band's music since before they ever signed a record deal, will be the first DJ in the world to play the new single - at 8.10am on The Colm & Jim-Jim Show on Ireland's RTÉ 2fm.

A few minutes later the single will be streaming live on U2.Com... and on radio stations worldwide.

Check in with us at 8.15am GMT on Monday.


what it sounds like, what it looks like...

In amongst all the excitement of hearing the first single for the first time (so exciting, so happy), U2France sneaked a preview of the packaging in without much fanfare (at least in the places I've been). And it's pretty, so very pretty, in a clean, minimalist, gorgeously greyscaled way.

I'm still confused by the lack of logic in the title/artwork juxtaposition, but aesthetically, I'm very pleased.
