Yup, that’s the new cover art for U2‘s upcoming twelfth studio effort, “No Line on the Horizon,” and while many hail it as one of the worse album art of the decade, we kinda find it okay, in a zen sorta way. The gray ocean horizon thingy was shot by Hiroshi Sugimoto, a Japanese photographer, symbolizing the never-ending horizon and the eternity of dreams. Ok, I get that, but what about that big ass, gray equal sign? Beats me.
“Get On Your Boots,” the first single off No Line, debuts this coming Monday at 3 a.m. ET on the Irish radio station 2FM, which coincidentally or not is right on Martin Luther King day. Kinda weird, tho, that the digital version will only come out after February 15th. Oh well.
Musically, the new album is said to have a lot of innovative elements, next to the usual arena anthems. It will definitely be an interesting album and most certainly one of the most anticipated of 2009.
