U2 Working On New Album, Danger Mouse Set to Produce

Posted October 25, 2010 by J Matthew Cobb in News

Talking about a change of pace.

U2 is currently working on their next album, and according to Bono, the album is moving quite swiftly. The album is being handled by dance/electro DJ and producer Danger Mouse and is scheduled for release sometime in early 2011. “We have about 12 songs with him,” Bono told The Age.” “At the moment that looks like the album we will put out next because it’s just happening so easily.”

A mix album is also scheduled to hit shelves, with production from a myriad of remix wizards including will.i.am., RedOne and David Guetta.

This isn’t the first time U2 has released a club-driven record. Zooropa and Pop, two albums released in the ’90’s, hinted at their electronic cravings, while Melon: Remixes for Propaganda, a fan club-only release, assembled a set of remixes from David Morales, Massive Attack and Perfecto.
