U2 are recording a new album with Danger Mouse, and they plan on releasing early next year. "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." Also in the works is a "club" album that will feature Will.i.am, RedOne and David Guetta. "U2's remixes in the 1990s were a real treasure," Bono said. "So we wanted to make a club-sounding record. We have a pile of songs." If that wasn't enough, the band is also contemplating recording the songs Bono and The Edge wrote the Spiderman Broadway musical. "We haven't convinced the rest of the band to do that yet," Bono said. "Larry definitely has a raised eyebrow."
