I hear so many songwriters describe their songs as their children. . . . They're your parents, they tell you what to do. -- Bono

Fill your boots

THEY may now be on their 12th studio album, but U2 have proved yet again that they've still got it with another amazing music video.

Directed by French film-maker and artist Alex Courtes, it features the band performing in front of graphic images of everything from fighter jets and volcanoes to naked women and American flags.

I had no idea what any of it means, but luckily guitarist The Edge was on hand to explain.

He says: "The video is based around the idea that men have f***ed things up so badly, politically, economically and socially, that it's really time we handed things over to women.

"The finished video is brilliant. Alex really nailed it."

Get On Your Boots is out on February 16 with album No Line On The Horizon following on March 2.
