U2 are reportedly delaying the release of their new album in order to fit in more recording sessions with producers Ryan Tedder and Paul Epworth—Danger Mouse is still the album’s main producer.
“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 told Billboard. “That magic that the band always seems to capture. . . they have yet to capture it.”
According to the same report, the band had been planning to ckick off a tour in September, but Live Nation is now rescheduling it for summer 2015.
