U2 has hinted in recent months that they’d begun working on a new album, and the most recent update from the band had them eyeing a fall release for the follow-up to 2009’s No Line On The Horizon. Now some juicy details are emerging about the band’s latest sessions. According to fansite @U2, Bono and Co. spent last week holed up in Electric Lady Studios in New York City, and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin was spotted entering the studio with the Irish icons. Obviously, a Chris Martin feature would be notable because Coldplay is seen as the successor to the anthemic Anglo arena rock throne held by U2.

In other news that has leaked in bits and pieces, super-producer Danger Mouse (one half of Gnarls Barkley, member of Broken Bells, producer for BeckNorah JonesThe Black Keys) is producing the album. That same website claims that on May 30 he was at Electric Lady mixing the album, which would suggest that the project is nearing completion. Sounds like we could be saying “Hello, hello, hola” to some new U2 material very soon.
