Bono reckons he 'could have made a limp work'

Bono has revealed that U2 are working on "club-sounding" album.

The band also plan to release a rock album and Songs of Ascent, a set of tunes from the recording session of their latest disc, 2009's No Line On The Horizon, the singer told Rolling Stone magazine. Bono and The Edge will also score for the upcoming Spider-Man musical.

The Irish frontman had emergency back surgery in Munich in May, forcing him to take it easy and miss a planned Glastonbury headline slot. The group's 360-degrees World Tour resumed on August 6 in Turin.

Bono told the magazine he has made a good recovery, although he joked he "could have made a limp work".

He added: "There are a lot bigger problems out there than the ones I was facing ... But I came out of it perfect. And I feel incredibly grateful."

The September issue of Rolling Stone hits newsstands on Friday.
