First Single to be played!?

I have come across a website that says they will be playing U2's first single off of "No Line On The Horizon"! Not sure if it is true or not. It looks like you can listen online. Just thought I would give a heads up

RT� Radio /index.html

This Monday 19 January at 8.10am on The Colm & Jim-Jim Show on RTÉ 2fm Dave Fanning will be the first DJ in the world to play the new U2 single 'Get on your boots' from the new album 'No Line in the Horizon'. Dave will be in studio talking to Colm and Jim-Jim from 7.30am about previous U2 albums, his relationship with the band and memories of one of the greatest bands in the world today.

From the very beginning - the first demo tape - RTÉ's Dave Fanning championed U2. When it came time to release their first single, the band visited Dave's RTÉ 2fm studio for five nights in a row in the summer of 1979.

The reason? Dave's listeners were invited to choose the A and B sides of their debut release. This was, of course the era of vinyl. When the vinyl was pressed, Dave was the first to play it.

It has been that way ever since. Through decades of era-defining albums and countless classic singles, Dave has always been granted the exclusive worldwide first radio play for new U2 material. It is what U2's manager Paul McGuinness refers to as his 'good-luck charm'.

Dave Fanning said: 'This might just be the longest gap ever between U2 albums. From everything I've heard so far, it's been more than worth the wait.'

So tune in to hear the worldwide exclusive first radio play of the song with Dave Fanning just after the 8.00am news next Monday morning on The Colm and Jim-Jim Show on RTÉ 2fm."
