    U2 told Rolling Stone that they have delayed plans to release a new album in 2011 and probably won't release a new disc until 2012. Good things come to those who wait.

    The band has been working regularly on new material during their extensive U2 360 tour but bassist Adam Clayton said, "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 and we just realized that we couldn't. To be honest, everyone was a bit gutted. But it was the only sensible decision."

    U2 will return to the studio later this year and revisit material recorded previously.
