Bono: Danger Mouse May Produce Next U2 Album

@U2, October 20, 2010

Is Songs Of Ascent dead? That's the U2 album that has repeatedly been reported as the next release -- a collection of songs leftover from the No Line On The Horizon sessions when Eno, Lanois, and Lillywhite filled the producer role. But Bono has told Australia's The Age that the next U2 album is likely to come from songs that the band has been working on with Danger Mouse producing:

More ambitiously, he has revealed his band is working on three new albums.

The first, which is likely to be released early next year, is being produced by Danger Mouse, the alias for American production ace Brian Burton (Gnarls Barkley, Gorillaz).

"We have about 12 songs with him," Bono said. "At the moment that looks like the album we will put out next because it's just happening so easily."

Bono says a second album is the "club"-sounding one, and that features Will.I.Am, David Guetta, and Lady Gaga collaborator RedOne. The final album would involve some of the Spider-Man songs, but Bono says Adam and Larry aren't sure about turning them into a U2 album.
