U2 Tour 2014: Bono and the rest of the rock band U2 are taking things slowly after they postponed the creation of their new album and their tour until 2015.

In a report by Billboard recently, they confirmed that the band who revolutionized rock with their hit songs "With Or Without You", "Ordinary Love" and "Beautiful Day", among others, will have to move their set release date of the new record and tour until 2015 for a few reasons.

"It seems to be taking longer for them to finish an album as they get older, but the great thing about U2 is that the whole of a record is always better than the sum of its parts," a source close to the project reportedly said. "That magic that the band always seems to capture ... they have yet to capture it."

In an interview with Hollywood reporter earlier this year, band members Larry Mullen and front man Bono hinted their work ethics when it cam on creating the new record they made and how the album wasn't yet ready.

The band is looking for more creative juices and time to work on the new album, which was one reason they extended their deadline until next year.

"We've always needed collaborators to challenge us," says drummer Larry Mullen. "We're slow learners. We need to be creative, on the cutting edge, challenged, and it's really hard going, it's relentless, and we're relentless, and we have a history of breaking engineers, producers. I mean, people come out of working with U2 and just go, 'I just don't know what's happened; it feels like a lifetime has passed by.' And that's just the way we work."

Bono then added: "The album won't be ready till it's ready. But right now, people are walking a little differently -- well, they're not walking, they're running as if to a finish line. There's a couple of songs that are part of the story we haven't quite finished. We know we have to spend a couple of years taking these songs around the world, so they'd better be good."
