U2 will likely follow 2009’s No Line on the Horizon with an album primarily produced by Danger Mouse, according to Bono. The Irish rock outfit’s frontman told Australian publication The Age that U2 is prepping three new albums, with the Danger Mouse (real name: Brian Burton) project possibly arriving in early 2011.
“We have about 12 songs with him,” says Bono. “At the moment that looks like the album we will put out next because it’s just happening so easily.”
Danger Mouse is best known for his work with Gnarls Barkley, Broken Bells and for the 2004 Jay-Z/Beatles mashup The Grey Album.
Bono also revealed that the band is working on a “club” record that will recall “U2’s remixes in the 1990s.” Will.i.am, David Guetta and producer RedOne are all involved with the project.
A possible third album would feature the material that Bono and guitarist the Edge penned for the upcoming Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. “We haven’t convinced the rest of the band to do that yet,” says Bono.
U2 will bring its U2 360 tour to Australia in December before returning to North America in mid-May. Previews for Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark are set to begin on Nov. 14.
