"There's a long way to go but we are doing something with U2," Falk is quoted by The Sun as saying.

A sourced added: "The band are back in the studio getting a feel for new material after the last album No Line On The Horizon.

"will.i.am had a credit on that and they are looking to explore that direction further. They have been working with Dangermouse and RedOne. They are excited about getting to work with Carl Falk."
