It's not that they will promote it. It's how they will promote it. Invisible has been promoted as a (RED) charity thing, and OL as a soundtrack song. Neither has been promoted as the first single from U2's long awaited new album. That does tend to get a little more attention. When people think U2 and charity or movies, they think of songs like hands, HMTMKMKM, etc., well known songs - but not iconic U2 by any stretch. When people think of the first song from a U2 album, they think Beautiful Day, Desire, Vertigo, With or Without You, New Years Day, Pride

Is Boots their Shiny Happy People? I'd say it's more their E Bow the letter, except new Adventures (REM) was a great, solid album with the wrong lead single. In that way, I'd say Boots was more Barry Williams from Up (Peter Gabriel). That one was a forced (bad) "single" that didn't fit the rest of the album. I guess Boots did fit the middle third of No Line...

Easily. I'm actually a big fan of the studio version as well.

Not bad!
Finally starting to get at least some of the recognition it deserves. An absolutely beautiful song.

I'm sure it'll go past #99 on the Hot 100 the week after this upcoming one.

Boots was U2's attempt at Stand not Shiny Happy People!

Don't ever compare E-Bow with Boots. NAIH was a brilliant album. It's what Rattle and Hum could've been. A lot of the songs on NAIH were recorded either at soundtrack or during the concert itself, with the crowd heavily edited out of the performance. If you listen very carefully, you can hear the crowd still.

E-Bow was one of the few exceptions - it was recorded in a studio.

NAIH captured being on the road perfectly, and no song does it better than E-Bow.

Will U2 ride this wave for the new album?

Or will they be Punxsutawney Phil & hibernate a little longer?

Ironic that Coldplay is #1.
