    Billboard confirmed with multiple sources that U2 has postponed the release of a new album and tour until 2015.

    The band recently scheduled additional sessions with producers Ryan Tedder and Paul Epworth, while Danger Mouse remains onboard as the project's central producer.

    An Interscope rep has said that with a release date never announced for a new record, so the album shouldn't be considered delayed. A tour, which had been considered for this September, won't happen until summer 2015.

    "It seems to be taking longer for them to finish an album as they get older, but the great thing about U2 is that the whole of a record is always better than the sum of its parts," says a source close to the project. "That magic that the band always seems to capture ... they have yet to capture it."

    Ok, so give them time to capture it, people. U2 are worth the wait.
