Rumours of music video shoots in Dublin that were really iPhone commercials have been dispelled.
Speculation has been rife all week that U2 were preparing to launch their 13th studio album in conjunction with the launch of the iPhone 6. The iTunes Festival takes place in London next week, and it was suggested that would be the venue for U2 to kick off their new campaign.
Well, it isn't
“They are not releasing their album on the iPhone, and they are not performing at the iPhone launch,” an official spokesperson has definitively confirmed.
As for that follow-up to 2009's No Line On The Horizon, it would still appear that all systems are go for a release this year. The record will likely feature contributions from a host of producers, including Danger Mouse, Paul Epworth, David Guetta, RedOne and Ryan Tedder and Will.i.am.
