After manager Paul McGuinness recently revealed that U2's new album is likely to be released in early 2011, now comes the news that the follow up to last year's 'No Line On The Horizon' will be mostly produced by Brian Burton AKA Danger Mouse.
Speaking to Theage.com, Bono said "We have about 12 songs with him ... At the moment that looks like the album we will put out next, because it's just happening so easily."
Burton, who is also a member of Gnarls Barkley and Broken Bells, is not the only new name U2 have been working with. Bono also revealed that the band are working on a "club" record featuring featuring Will.i.am and David Guetta and Lady Gaga collaborator RedOne. He hopes it will repeat the success of their remix albums in the 90s.
"U2's remixes in the 1990s were a real treasure, so we wanted to make a club sounding record. We have a pile of songs."
The band are also considering releasing an album based the songs Bono and The Edge contributed to the new Broadway musical of Spiderman, though Bono admits Larry Mullen has yet to be convinced.
