U2 are set to make a “club-sounding” album, Bono has revealed.

The singer, who is recovering from back surgery, spilled the beans to Rolling Stone magazine.

Bono said they wanted to release a more rock-inspired album as well.

The group are already planning to bring out the LP Songs Of Ascent, a companion album to their 2009 hit No Line On The Horizon.

Speaking about being rushed to hospital, he said: “There are a lot bigger problems out there than the ones I was facing.”

“But I came out of it perfect. And I feel incredibly grateful.”

U2 are currently on the European leg of their 360 Degree World tour.
