New U2: single streaming , album details

U2's new single "Get On Your Boots" from their upcoming album, No Line on the Horizon, debuted today around radio stations around the globe. The band have also made the track available for streaming over on their myspace page, as well as here. The brand new LP will be released March 3rd in the US & March 2nd in the UK and rest of the world, and it will come out in six different formats, which is starting to become a disturbing trend it seems. You can get the more traditional formats of CD, vinyl and digital, but then the album is also available as a magazine, a deluxe gatefold CD, which is accompanied by a video shot by Anton Corbjin, and as a boxed set. The new disc was recorded last year in Fez, Morocco, Dublin, London and New York, and sees the band working with longtime U2 producers, Brian Eno and Danny Lanois, with additional production provided by another U2 stalwart Steve Lillywhite.
