U2 Say New Album To Be Released In Early 2014

U2 bassist Adam Clayton let it slip that fans can expect a new album from the band "sometime early next year."

"We are still at it. We hope to have it finished very, very soon. And it will be out, oh . . . sometime early next year," Clayton told Irish radio's Dermot and Dave show.

"But it's a very exciting bunch of songs right at the moment . . . it's just about to be finished, so it's hard to know which way they'll go."

Clayton added that the record is shaping up to be a combination of old and new:

"I think it's a bit of a return to U2 of old, but with the maturity, if you like, of the U2 of the last 10 years. It's a combination of those two things and it's a really interesting hybrid. We're in the studio. We're trying to get these 12 songs absolutely right and get them finished by the end of November, and then we can kind of enjoy Christmas."
