U2 studio Get On Your Boots

Did Rock and Roll just get reinvented by the 32 year old veteran rock band U2? I would say it did. On February 15th U2 will be releasing their first single “Get On Your Boots” off their upcoming album No Line On The Horizon as a digital download so you can get a taste of their new sound. 

Throughout "Get On Your Boots", U2 have taken a very deep gritty guitar sound and laid it over a very nice sixties solid drum beat. It sounds like what The Doors would of sounded like if they would have been around during the grunge scene. With the new sound U2 seems to be bringing us, we still see Bono staying true to his inspiration in songwriting: songs about sociological and cultural issues that are facing the world today.

After hearing this single, I am anxiously waiting March 3 so I can own my copy of No Line On The Horizon.  If you would like to hear this song you can check it out at:  http://goyb.u2.com

 No Line On The Horizon will be released on March 2 (March 3 in the U.S) and will be availiable in multiple formats (at least five).

Get On Your Boots

 

"Get On Your Boots" - Lyrics

You free me from the dark dream
Candy floss ice cream
All our kids are screaming
But the ghosts aren’t real

Here’s where we gotta be
Love and community
Laughter is eternity
If joy is real

You don’t know how beautiful
You don’t know how beautiful you are
You don’t know, and you don’t get it, do you?
You don’t know how beautiful you are

That’s someone’s stuff they’re blowing up
We’re into growing up
Women of the future
Hold the big revelations

I got a submarine
You got gasoline
I don’t want to talk about wars between nations

Not right now

Hey sexy boots...
Get on your boots, yeah
Not right now
Bossy boots

You don’t know how beautiful
You don’t know how beautiful you are
You don’t know, and you don’t get it, do you?
You don’t know how beautiful you are

Hey sexy boots
I don’t want to talk about the wars between the nations
Sexy boots, yeah

Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound, sound
Let me in the sound, sound
Meet me in the sound

Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound, now
God, I’m going down
I don’t wanna drown now
Meet me in the sound

Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound
Let me in the sound, sound

Let me in the sound, sound

Meet me in the sound

Get on your boots
Get on your boots

Get on your boots
Yeah hey hey
