U2 hit the studio for new album

Bono and company begin work in Dublin

U2 have reportedly entered a Dublin studio to begin work on their new album.

The band have been writing songs for the follow-up to 2004's 'How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb' for several months around the world. They are now continuing work in the studio with long-term production collaborators Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois.

"We're going to try and break new sonic ground and deliver a masterpiece," Lanois told Billboard.com. "The sleeves are rolled up. Bono is all charged up with a lyrical angle."

"There's so much material," he added. "When you get Eno and I and those guys in the room, before lunch there's like eight things."

As of now, no release date has been set for the new album.
