by | 14 February 2009

U2 are to perform tracks from their new album No Line on the Horizon on BBC Radio 1 later this month, it has been announced.

Bono and company will play three tracks for a session in the Radio 1 Live Lounge on Friday February 27th before appearing on Chris Evans' Radio 2 show later that day.

The multiple Grammy winners' Live Lounge appearance coincides with DJ Jo Whiley's return to Radio 1 after five months' maternity leave.

"Time has flown and I'm very excited about getting back to my show and being reunited with my radio family," she said.

"It's always a bit nerve-racking going back after having a baby but having U2, one of the world's biggest bands, playing in the Live Lounge and debuting new songs from their very fine latest album is especially thrilling."

U2's new single Get On Your Boots is released on February 16th.
