ANI/Daily News & Analysis

Irish rock band U2 has revealed that the release of their new album will be delayed due to the failure of recording sessions.

The band had been working with Gnarls Barkley star Danger Mouse and superproducer RedOne, and had hoped to release their 13th studio album, the follow-up album to 2009's 'No Line on the Horizon', within the next few months.

But bassist Adam Clayton revealed the recording sessions with RedOne are just not working, and that with their busy schedule they would have to delay further studio work, which will most likely delay release of the album to late 2012.

"We had to have a meeting and look at the schedule to see if we could pick up any extra time to work on it. We just realised that we couldn't," the Daily Star quoted Clayton as telling Rolling Stone.

"To be honest, everyone was a bit gutted. But it was the only sensible decision (to postpone it)," he added.
