U2 aiming to release new album in spring 2014

U2 are aiming to release their new album in the spring of 2014, according to Billboard.

The music industry magazine reports U2 are readying a new album for tentative release in April, and are currently shopping for brand partners to announce the new project via a Super Bowl commercial.

Danger Mouse has been producing the set, which was recorded primarily at New York's Electric Lady Studios.

In the meantime, U2 will release “Ordinary Love”, a new song written for the upcoming movie “Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom”, on 10-inch vinyl on Black Friday, November 29th.

The release is part of Back To Black Friday, an event sponsored by Record Store Day organizers to encourage the support of independent local record stores.
