– Being Born”?!? WTF? What would Mike Edison say! At any rate, that’s one of
the song titles from the previously announced forthcoming U2 album No Line on the Horizon, due March 3 from
UMG. We listed the album as among the 100 Most Anticipated Releases coming up,
but don’t let that deter ya from supporting your favorite Irish band.
The first single, “Get On Your Boots” drop Feb. 16 in both
physical and digital formats; the band will perform that song Feb. 18 at London’s BRIT Awards, but fans can get a taste of it as
early as next Monday when it premieres on Dublin’s
2FM. And as you might expect, the album comes in both standard and deluxe
versions – the latter including bonus booklet material plus a DVD of the Anton
Corbijn film Linear and being offered
in several different formats with pricing ranging up to a 100-buck collector’s
The album cover, above, was designed by the band with
Japanese artist/photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto – who we hope got paid,
considering there doesn’t appear to have been any substantial work that went
into the design!
