U2 Still Planning to Release New Album in 2014
U2 has been working on a follow-up to 2009's commercially disappointing "No Line on the Horizon" for about five years. After plenty of time working on material with producer Paul Epworth, the Grammy-winning band is ready to unleash its long-delayed thirteenth studio album, which could arrive as early as next month, Backstageol reports (via Rolling Stone).

A few months ago, reports suggesting the international rock group was postponing the release of the new album until 2015 were circulating, but that timing is inaccurate. "We've always said an album is expected this year," said a spokesperson for the band. The as-yet-untitled album is expected to come out within the next few months.

Universal Music Venezuela and Universal Music Colombia posted tweets saying the album was coming out in September, but that date has yet to be verified. An unconfirmed scheduled says there will be a single out in September, an album out in September or October, and a tour announced in December, with dates beginning in April of next year.

U2 hasn't revealed much about the upcoming album, but the band did speak briefly about the project. "We really want the songs to be right," said The Edge. "That's the only reason why we're not on tour - because we're so good at starting, not so good at finishing. That's always the way it's been."
