U2 fans, get your boots on. The first song from the band's first album in five years is ready for you to hear.
U2 began broadcasting the up-tempo single "Get On Your Boots" Monday -- first on RTE, Ireland's state broadcasters, then for free on the group's Web site.
It's the Dublin-bred band's long-standing practice to give hometown fans the first listen of each album. Giving an advance taste on the Internet to the rest of the world is new.
U2's official Web site lists all 11 title tracks for the new album, "No Line on the Horizon," which will be released Feb. 27 in Ireland and March 3 worldwide. It is the band's 12th studio album and the first since 2004's Grammy-winning "How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb."
