 OTHER NOTES:
Get on Your Boots was released as the first single from the album No Line on the Horizon.  The song debuted on January 19, 2009 via radio, and in a move unheard of from U2 in the past, was available immediately in the iTunes store worldwide.  No more waiting for a promo single to hit your local radio station so you could tape it, you could buy your very own copy shortly after it was introduced to the world.

The song, "Get On Your Boots" was originally titled "Sexy Boots" for the planned fall release, and was planned as the first single even before the album was delayed.  The version of "No Line on the Horizon" appearing on this release is not a remix, but instead is an alternate recording of the song.
