U2 New Album 2014: ‘Bono Sings Better Than Ever,’ Says Former Band Manager; Classic Hitmakers Back With New Tracks Before December?

It is confirmed! U2 will be releasing a new album this 2014.
After some speculations about the delay of their next album (because they needed more time to sit down with producers Ryan Tedder and Paul Epworth) the band's spokesperson shared a strong pronouncement to Rolling Stone"We've always said an album is expected this year."
Now we are juggling between the September and November release of U2's new album as various sources mark their sole judgments. According to The Sun, "the new album will drop before the end of the year, most likely in November."
As per the Universal Music Venezuela and Universal Music Columbia on the other hand, the album will be coming out in September as they tweet: "The new U2 album will be called 'Sirens' and will be released in September." Such leaked details were since taken down by the band's label.
Another source of the Irish Times also mentioned that a single will be out in September, followed by the announcement of tour dates in December.  
Proving that a new album is now shaping up, U2 was recently caught filming an upcoming single at the Samuel Beckett Bridge in Dublin as well. With this, a music insider quoted in the Independent says "Here has been talk of them going back to their roots and filming something in the capital for the new album as they love to use Dublin as a backdrop for their music,"
While U2's new album hasn't landed on a definite release date yet, the band's previous manager Paul McGuinness teased that their songs may have a different feel this time but Bono's singing prowess hasn't changed a bit: "It's great. It's very different from what they have done so far but still sounds like U2. Bono sings better than ever. As he gets older his voice is even more interesting."
What genre are they now working on? Are they going to take us back to the classics "With or Without You", "Ordinary Love", "Sunday Bloody Sunday", and "Beautiful Day"? Or will they continue incorporating pop music influences?
The band's last release was in 2009, No Line on the Horizon, which also came out 5 years after How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb. The sales soared high after its release but eventually declined.  
Watch out for more updates about U2's new album this 2014.
