It feels like we have to wait until the end of the world for a new album and tour from U2.
Per Billboard.com, the legendary quartet have pushed back the release of their 13th studio album and their subsequent tour to 2015, in order to team with mega producers Paul Epworth and Ryan Tedder.
For those not familiar with Epworth and Tedder, they’ve worked with a bunch of different artists, including Florence and the Machine, Paul McCartney and Beyonce.
Oh…and they’re also responsible for Adele winning a bunch of Grammys.
It’s no secret that U2 are looking to bounce back from the disappointing reception of their 2009 release No Line On The Horizon, which only sold 1.1 million copies in the US, compared to their 2004 release How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb, which sold 3.3 million copies.
If getting a great record out of U2 means fans have to wait another year, I think we’re willing to make that sacrifice.
