Glen Hansard, winner of the Oscar for Best Original Song, has revealed that U2’s Bono sent him a text message congratulating him.

Hansard won the Oscar in Los Angeles on Sunday along with his partner Markéta Irglová for their song ‘Falling Slowly’, which appears in the movie, Once.

“What was really amazing for me was getting texts from family and friends, it was amazing beforehand, and then I got a text from Bono and I was like 'Ah, my God, that's just amazing,’” Hansard told Irish radio station, RTE.

“For me it was just like getting a text off the King of the Tribe,” he added.

Meanwhile, U2 are currently in the studio in Dublin working on their new album alongside Brian Eno.

No release date for the as-yet-untitled project has been set.
