U2 will release their new album in May – according to one online retailer.
Although no official release date for the record has been announced, the German version of retailer Amazon, Amazon.de, has listed a new release for the band for May 27.
U2‘s spokesperson told Uncut‘s sister-title NME: “As has been widely reported U2 are in the studio working on a new record but no release date has been set.”
Frontman Bono said last year that the band had been working on songs for the album with Brian ‘Danger Mouse’ Burton on production duties. He had also claimed shortly after the release of their last record, 2009’s ‘No Line On The Horizon’, that the group had made another album called ‘Songs Of Ascent’ during the same recording sessions, but this has yet to see the light of day.
