U2 have been spotted entering a New York studio with Coldplay's Chris Martin, fuelling speculation that the singer may appear on the band's new album.

All four members of the Irish rock group were seen at the Electric Lady Studios in New York on Friday (May 31), where Danger Mouse is reportedly mixing their new album.

A reporter for fansite atu2.com turned up at the studio after Bono, The Edge and Adam Clayton had already arrived. While outside, he witnessed Chris Martin enter the studio, followed shortly by U2 drummer Larry Mullen Jr. The same reporter later filmed Martin leaving the studio, but the singer denied he was there with U2 - you can watch footage of this below.

Later on Friday, U2 performed 'Sunday Bloody Sunday' for a video on the roof of the Electric Lady Studios. The shoot was reportedly recorded for creative art group The Inside Out Project. Artist JR, who set up the project, also tweeted a picture of Bono and The Edge – with Chris Martin in the background – playing at a private party later that night.

He posted:



Earlier this year, Bono said that the next U2 album will only be released when it's completely ready. Speaking to The Sun, he said: "U2 have been back and they're really in fine fettle."

He added: "They’re mad for it at the moment and they really want to make a new record. And they don’t care if it takes 10 years – they don’t care if it never happens again, they just want to get it right. Within the band we’ve been calling it '10 Reasons To Exist' – but I will tell you we might have at least six of them."
