A spokesperson for U2 has denied that the band have pushed back the release date of their 13th studio album to 2015.

Investigations by Billboard last week suggested that the band had pushed the album back to next year. It reported that the band had booked further studio time with producers Paul Epworth and Ryan Tedder, who would join the project's main producer Danger Mouse. It also suggested that U2 had cancelled a tour due to take place in summer 2014.

Speaking to The Guardian, a spokesperson for the band flatly denied the claims, saying: "U2's album is planned for this year (2014), is still on track and touring plans haven’t been confirmed yet."

Following recent appearances at the Golden Globes and the release of new tracks 'Ordinary Love' and 'Invisible', which was downloaded for free three million times, speculation had mounted that the band were gearing up to release their next album this year . Following Billboard's investigation last week, an Interscope representative said the album cannot be considered delayed as a release date was never announced.
