Rep Denies Claim U2 Delays Album and Tour


U2
The rep for the Irish band says that the highly-anticipated new album 'is planned for this year [and] is still on track.'


U2's highly-anticipated new album and tour are not pushed back to next year. A representative for the Irish band has confirmed to The Guardian that Bono and Co. will still put out what would be their thirteenth LP sometime this year.

"U2's album is planned for this year [and] is still on track," the rep said and added that the "touring plans haven't been confirmed yet." The rep's denial came just days after Billboard reported that the band had delayed their new record to 2015 so they could have additional recording session with producers Ryan Tedder and Paul Epworth.

"It seems to be taking longer for them to finish an album as they get older, but the great thing about U2 is that the whole of a record is always better than the sum of its parts," a source told the music site late last month. "That magic that the band always seems to capture ... they have yet to capture it."

It's still unclear when the album will finally arrive. In early February, frontman Bono hoped to release the record this summer, telling USA Today, "We want it to come out this summer, but you don't want to let anyone down."
