Grammy-winning Canadian producer and artist Daniel Lanois is in hospital after suffering multiple injuries in a motorcycle accident over the weekend in the Silverlake area of Los Angeles.

Lanois, 58, is in intensive care but expects to be released soon, according to a statement from his record label.

He has cancelled all upcoming tour dates and promotional activity and will likely spend the next two months recuperating.

His outfit Black Dub, which also features Trixie Whitley and Brian Blade, will release their debut "when circumstances permit," his label said.

Lanois, born in Quebec and raised in Hamilton, Ont., is best-known for his production work with U2 ("The Joshua Tree," "Achtung Baby") and Bob Dylan ("Time Out of Mind," "Oh Mercy").
