Producer Lanois gets The Edge|

(JAM! Showbiz) -- It's not every day that The Edge drops over to your house to talk shop.
But then not everybody is acclaimed Canadian producer Daniel Lanois, who worked on U2's All That You Can't Leave Behind (2000), Zooropa (1993), Achtung Baby (1991), The Joshua Tree (1987), and The Unforgettable Fire (1984).
Speaking to The Sun -- leading up to his April 14 induction into the Canadian Music Hall Of Fame during the Junos in St. John's, Nfld., -- Lanois said the U2 guitarist was swinging by his L.A. home yesterday to talk about some songs for an upcoming U2 "best-of" compilation.
"We're just going to yak and see what it's all about," said Lanois.
"To my knowledge there's a 'best of the '90s' that's going to come out before their next official record. So they're probably looking to pepper that with a new track or two."
JAM! Music reported yesterday that the collection, featuring songs from 1991 to 2000, was tentatively scheduled for an October release with two new singles expected this year and in early 2003.
"We'll see what The Edge has to say," said Lanois.
"I have a vested interest here. We've already done the work for this best-of. I want as good a record as it can be."
The first instalment, U2: The Best Of 1980-1990, was released in 1998.
As for the next U2 studio album, Lanois said: "They came off the road and decided to go straight in and get some recording done. I believe they set up in the south of France and just shacked up in an old nightclub there and knocked out a couple of weeks of recording."
U2 reportedly scrubbed a European summer tour in favour of returning to the studio to work on new material.
