U2's No Line On The Horizon is just hitting stores now, as in right now. But apparently the band has another set of tunes all ready to go - and they don't want you to wait to hear them.

According to the New York Times, a companion album to 'Horizon' could very well be released later this year.

Comprised of material drawn from the same recording sessions, the as-yet-untitled CD will have a "more meditative and processional tone" than 'Horizon.'

In the four and a half years since 2004's How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb, U2 have been active in the studio, in fits and starts, including an unfinished project with noted producer Rick Rubin. The band's plan for a companion disc to 'Horizon' expanded from an initial concept to release two EPs.
