After the band’s manager Paul McGuinness revealed this week that U2’s next album will be released early next year and will be called ‘Songs Of Ascent’. Bono has now told The Age that it is being produced by Danger Mouse.

As previously reported, U2 are currently working on a number of projects, including a “club” album with David Guetta. But, says Bono, it’s the Danger Mouse album that will most likely be ready first.

Bono told The Age: “We have about twelve songs with [Danger Mouse]. At the moment that looks like the album we will put out next because it’s just happening so easily”.

He added that he and The Edge are also hoping to record an album based on the Spiderman musical they have written together, but said: “We haven’t convinced the rest of the band to do that yet. Larry definitely has a raised eyebrow”.
