So, er…about that U2 album that we’ve all been looking forward to…(shuffles feet awkwardly) it’s been postponed until 2015. Yeah we know, the recent promotional blitz may say otherwise, but Bono and the gang aren’t ready to make good on the rumors that we’d have new music in our hands by April.

Says Billboard:

“While an Interscope representative maintains that with a release date never announced the album shouldn’t be considered delayed, Billboard has learned that a tour initially on track for a mid-March announcement and September start date, booked by Live Nation’s Global Touring division, will now begin in summer 2015. Delays are nothing new in the world of U2 – the band’s 360° Tour, itself set back with postponements related to the making of 2009′s No Line on the Horizon, went on to become the highest-grossing tour of all time, with more than $737 million in receipts from three legs in 2010 and 2011, according to Billboard Boxscore.”

The bad news: the article goes on to mention that there also won’t be a tour this year. (Pause for tears.)

The good news: the article clarifies that Danger Mouse is still the main producer. Also on board (good or bad news depending on how you look at it) is OneREpublic producer Ryan Tedder, and Paul Epworth.
