U2 comeback on despite Bono's writing struggles

U2 will release their new album later this year.

The four-piece rock band - made up of lead singer Bono, guitarist The Edge, bassist Adam Clayton and drummer Larry Mullen Jr. - are said to be planning to release their currently unnamed thirteenth studio album, this November.

It is believed the band - who are set to play at one of the iTunes Festival gigs at the Roundhouse in Camden, North London, in September - could even have their new material ready to debut at the

performance.

The album is the first to be released by the group in five years and will follow their 2009 work 'No Line On The Horizon'.

However, it has been a difficult time for singer-songwriter Bono, 54, who is believed to have suffered from writer's block throughout the production process.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "The U2 comeback is very much on for this year. This album has been a real struggle for them to make.

"It's taken a long time and Bono didn't find it easy.

"But they feel very confident now and are convinced the wait has been worth it."
