Billboard reports that U2 will not unveil a new album until 2015, despite a tentative release planned for this summer. The band also decided to reschedule a tour, originally slated to begin in September, for summer 2015 so they can continue to work on the album in additional sessions scheduled 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 close to the project reportedly said. "That magic that the band always seems to capture ... they have yet to capture it."
