Bono is saying the next U2 album will be called `Songs of Ascent'. He should know.

In an interview with Sean O'Hagan, Bono called 'Songs of Ascent' the sister album to 'No Line Of The Horizon', similar to how 'Zooropa' and 'Achtung Baby' were bookends.

Atu2.com says the album is expected to be produced by Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois once again, with additional work by Steve Lillywhite.

Some of the songs are expected to be the leftover tracks from 'No Line On The Horizon', but some are older.

Songs expected to be used include 'North Star', an unused track from 'How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb'.

'Winter', the song that didn't make 'No Line On The Horizon' but was used in the movie 'Brothers' is expected to make the new album and 'Kingdom Of Your Love', heard in part of the intro music of the U2 360 Tour is also expected on the album.

Other tracks we might find there are "Every Breaking Wave', 'If I Could Live My Life Again', 'Love Is All We Have Left', 'Mercy', 'Lead Me In The Way I Should Go' and 'You Can't Give Away Your Heart'.

Bono told the Irish Independent that the album may be out in June.
