Last week, sources claimed that an upcoming U2 album would not be released until 2015.
Now, a representative is denying that claim. He tells The Guardian, "U2’s album is planned for this year, is still on track and touring plans haven’t been confirmed yet."
The album might be on track for a 2014 release, however it still seems to be at least somewhat delayed. U2 spent much of the winter in what many would consider to be a publicity blitz for the album. They appeared in a Super Bowl commercial, performed on The Tonight Show, and played at the Oscars.
