Rumours are rife that world famous rock band U2 has descended on Crouch End to record their new album at the iconic Church Studios.

The Dublin-based band is believed to be recording at the venue in Crouch Hill, taken over by British producer Paul Epwoth in October.

It is thought the foursome are working with Mr Epworth, the co-writer of Adele’s Oscar-winning Bond theme tune, on their 13th studio album, due to be released later this year.

Lead singer Bono, guitarist The Edge and drummer Larry Mullen have also been spotted dining at Spiazzo in The Broadway over the last few weeks.

According to staff, who could not resist asking the stars to pose for a snap, they have been feasting on T-bone steak, pizza, pasta and enjoying “lots of wine”.

Manager Marcel Ritelli said the band members have been causing quite the stir, adding: “It’s been nice and pleasurable to have them here.”

Last year residents feared Church Studios was going to be turned into flats after previous owner singer-songwriter David Gray got permission to convert the building into five luxury apartments.

But Mr Epwoth, who has also worked with the likes of Paul McCartney, Florence and the Machine and Plan B, put a stop to these plans by making an offer on the converted chapel.

It is currently undergoing a refurbishment to make it a “viable commercial business”.
