U2 delay new album and tour

WENN

U2 have scrapped plans to release a new album in 2014 so they can spend more time working with top songwriters and producers Ryan Tedder and Paul Epworth, according to Billboard.

The Irish rockers are reportedly delaying the release of their next album until 2015 just weeks after frontman Bono told USA Today he and his bandmates were hoping to release new material this summer. Reports suggest the band has also axed a planned tour that was to begin in September.

The dates are now expected to begin next summer. Last month, drummer Larry Mullen, Jr. blamed the group's work on Oscar nominated song "Ordinary Love" for the album delay, and guitarist The Edge told Rolling Stone earlier this year that the group had "about 30 songs we're really excited about, in various states of being finished."

Not The band they once we're in the early 80's....Bono has this god like image of himself, Ordinary love was awful...The free song they gave out during the superbowl which I do not remember the title was very bad...

Such cynical attitudes and comments. Do you people just sit and wait for an article to come out, just so you can vomit all over it? One life to live. You should live it.
