Reports recently claimed that U2 would release their new album in April 2014 and an announcement could be made at Super Bowl XLVIII in February, with representatives for the band currently negotiating a deal with brands to announce the LP. Bassist Adam Clayton recently confirmed that the group were planning to wrap up recording by the end of this year.
Earlier this year, U2 were reportedly spotted entering a New York studio with Chris Martin, fuelling speculation that the singer may appear on the album. All four members of the rock group were seen at the Electric Lady Studios in New York in May, where Danger Mouse was mixing the new material.
