U2 rocker Bono is allegedly responsible for the band's latest recordings leaking online - after he played the tracks to pals on holiday.
The Irish superstar was listening to songs from the group's forthcoming album at his villa in the South of France - and an erstwhile reportedly holidaymaker recorded them.
The clips were then posted on video networking website YouTube.com
The band have recently finished their next studio album, rumoured to be called No Line On The Horizon.
