...or so sayeth Kanye in his latest web post

The Black Eyed Peas' Will.I.Am is producing U2's new album, according to a blog post by Kanye West.

The news seems to contradict previous reports that the band had been working on their twelfth studio album, tentatively called No Line On The Horizon, with more familiar bedfellows Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno.

Kanye wrote: "WILL.I.AM IS PRODUCING ON U2'S NEXT ALBUM. I'M SURE IT WILL BE DOPE AS SHIT JUDGING FROM THE CRAZY BEATS HE'S DONE IN THE PAST 3 YEARS!"

Perhaps the Cheryl Cole-sniffing author of 'My Humps' is working on an individual track for the Irish rockers - either way, we've every confidence that "dopey shit" will be an apt description for the result.
