U2 Now Aiming to Release New CD by End of 2012

Isaac Brekken/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- U2 originally planned to have a new album in stores before their current "U2 360" tour ended, but now that's not happening.

The band told Rolling Stone that the plan now is to go back into the studio when the tour ends and work on a record that will be released "toward the end of next year."

U2 had been working on separate groups of songs, with Lady Gaga's producer RedOne and with producer/artist Danger Mouse, best known as one-half of Gnarls Barkley.  Now, the band told Rolling Stone that it's the Danger Mouse songs that will likely become their new album.

Adam Clayton said, "We have to focus on what we do best, and the work we did with Danger Mouse came closest to that...the thing we did with RedOne doesn't feel like the right fit."
