U2 have recruited Gnarls Barkley star Danger Mouse to produce their next album. Frontman Bono tells fans the new release could be out early in 2011, because "it's just happening so easily".

"We have about 12 songs with him," Bono says. The album is tentatively titled "Songs of Ascent" and is just one of three albums the group is working on. They also working on new "club" album, which will feature collaborations with will.i.am and David Guetta, among others. Bono tells The Age, "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."

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." The vocalist says, "We haven't convinced the rest of the band to do that yet."
