U2 are set to appear on Later... with Jools Holland.
The band will be playing songs from their recently released 13th album, 'Songs Of Innocence', on the BBC Two show later this month, with the show set for broadcast on Tuesday October 21 at 10pm and Friday October 24 at 11.05pm. Sam Smith, Interpol and Zola Jesus will also appear on the long-running live music programme.
Meanwhile, U2's bassist Adam Clayton recently said that the band have finished '70 per cent' of their next album. Speaking to Q, Clayton said that they have already got over half of the material together for the follow-up to 'Songs of Innocence'. Their next album will be their 14th and is set to be titled 'Songs of Experience'.
He commented: "I think we've probably got 70 per cent of the material that we think will go onto it. The 30 per cent that we're missing I think we'll be able to generate relatively easily. But the amount of energy it will take to refine the perspective of those songs is hard to predict."
