U2’s highly-anticipated new album and tour are not pushed back to next year, says a representative for the Irish band.

Bono and other members will still put out their thirteenth LP sometime this year, reported Ace Showbiz. “U2’s album is planned for this year (and) is still on track,” the rep said and added that the “touring plans haven’t been confirmed yet.”

The rep’s denial came just days after there were reports that the band had delayed their new record to 2015 so they could have additional recording session with producers Ryan Tedder and Paul Epworth.

It’s still unclear when the album will finally arrive. In early February, frontman Bono said they are trying to release the record this summer.
