U2 is denying reports that their upcoming album has been pushed back to 2015. 

A rep for the band tells "The Los Angeles Times" the Irish rockers still intend to have their next disc in stores before this year is over.  A group spokesperson also tells the UK's "Guardian" that a 2014 release is "still on track," and "tour plans" in support of the disc "haven't been confirmed yet. 

An unnamed source told "Billboard" last week that U2 was delaying both the album and tour until 2015, saying the band needed more time to complete the record. 

U2's new album has never had an official release date.  It was originally expected to arrive this spring, and then was pushed back to the summer. 

The band unveiled their latest single, "Invisible," in a Super Bowl ad last month.  They've also been busy in the awards circuit with "Ordinary Love," their contribution to the movie Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom.

U2's song won a Golden Globe award back in January, and was nominated for an Oscar.  The band performed at the Academy Awards ceremony earlier this month.
