I’m kinda hoping this is just a late April Fools joke. The Independant is reporting that U2 is teaming up with boy band song writter Carl Falk who penned One Direction’s hit What makes you beautiful, which won single of the year at the 2012 Brits. You can read for yourself here. On a more positive note, they are said to be collaborating with Black Eyed Peas front man will.i.am on a song for the new album. I guess we’ll have to wait and see what’s in store.
