U2 have confirmed reports that their new album will be released later this year.

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.

Earlier this year, reports had suggested that the band had pushed back the album to have time to work on material with producer Paul Epworth, whose credits include Adele and Coldplay. However, this was denied by a band spokesperson and recent reports have suggested that the album could be released as soon as next month, with Universal Music Venezuela and Universal Music Colombia briefly posting tweets saying the album was coming out in September.

Now the band have again confirmed that the album will be released in 2014, with a spokesperson telling Rolling Stone: "We've always said an album is expected this year."

In February, the band debuted their comeback single 'Invisible' during an advert at the Super Bowl, allowing fans to download it for free on iTunes.

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.
