U2 will reportedly release their new album in November, with the band said to be "very confident" ahead of their long-awaited comeback.

The group are due to release their first album since 2009's 'No Line On The Horizon' and have been recording with producers including Danger Mouse in recent months. A spokesperson for U2 recently denied that the band have pushed back the release date of their 13th studio album to 2015.

Taking this further, a report in The Sun today (July 22) sees the tabloid report that "the new album will drop before the end of the year, most likely in November" while also suggesting that the band could perform at London's Roundhouse in September as part of this year's iTunes Festival.

"The U2 comeback is very much on for this year," said a source. "This album has been a real struggle for them to make. It's taken a long time and Bono didn't find it easy. But they're very confident now and are convinced the wait has been worth it."

In addition to a new U2 album, Bono and The Edge are also working with Once director John Carney on a new musical film based on the filmmaker's childhood.

U2 won a Golden Globe earlier this year for their song 'Ordinary Love', taken from Nelson Mandela biopic Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom.
