Oh hey, I found it! There are two of the same song, for some reason. I tried to see if I could buy it, but it said it wasn't available. This was in the US store, by the way.

I didn't try to buy it, but I am in the US, just type in Get on your boots in the search bar, and it is about half way down.

It's definitely...interesting.
I have to listen to the song in its entirety before passing judgment.
Only about 4 hrs left.

Can't wait.

Get on your boots,

I still see it (in the Canadian store btw). And I see 2 listings as well...the one with the PLUS sign next to the price is iTunes Plus...meaning 256kbps (vs. current 128) and DRM-free. I don't even know why they have the other one.

SOOO EXCITED. It better be available to purchase at midnight.

And i think it'll be available on its own, without pre-ordering....as it's listed for $0.99

P.S. if you want the higher quality DRM-free version, you need to upgrade iTunes, if you haven't done so in the last little bit.

and the wait continues...

I did do a powersearch...are you guys in the US store? No Line On the Horizon was there for a couple minutes, and it was listed as $17.99...I clicked on it, and it said it's not available...

Now, it's totally disappeared for me!  :-\

Let me check it again

0.99 USD = 1.45662 AUD

So you're overpaying by 24 odd cents in AUS. Bummer. I'm surprised songs in the Canadian store are $0.99, conversion = $1.22 US, saving us 22 cents. Hmm that can't be possible...maybe we're charged in US dollars...but i don't think so...yay

What a tease!!!   Like someone already stated, it was DEFINITELY interesting.  The sound of the melody is new for U2.  Was this the song that was described as "picking up where Vertigo left off"?  I dont hear that from the clip... maybe in the bass which was sounding really good.  Too short for any real analysis or lasting impressions... just inital thoughts here.

Interesting, doesn't sound like what I was expecting, doesnt sound like anything I have heard from U2, doesnt sound like anything on the radio currently, vocals/harmony somewhat 70s-ish in maybe a slight Zepplin way but without sounding retro, cant compare it to another U2 song, Can't tell if that was going into the chorus? not sure if it has WOW factor of say The Fly or Numb, or the energy of Vertigo, but this is only a short snippet

Cant wait!

Just downloaded it on itunes!



I really like it! Its definitely different and I don't want the whole album to be just like this, but as a single I really like it. It has a very distinct sound to it. I really think that they should move up the release date for the album now. I mean they moved up the release of the single up by a month right? I can dream.  :'(

I was able to sneak in a download before Apple came to its senses...

It's a lot to digest. I'm not crazy about the hook. On the other hand, I love Bono's cadence and the rhythm of the whole song, and while it's built on a conventional song structure a lot of the sound is unpredictable in a good way, such as the tone of Edge's harmonics and Larry's drums at the end. I like that there are several sonic layers here.

Most of all, it comforts me that this song stood out as the obvious single to people who have heard the entirety of the album. It's not a phoned-in single, the way I felt after hearing "Vertigo" (only made worse after hearing "Native Son"). Hopefully it's indicative of the craft and thought that went into the rest of NLOTH.
