After a bout of writer’s block, U2 is releasing a new album this November and the band is rumored to have scheduled a small London concert before the release.

This is a momentous event for fans – it will be the Irish rockers’ first album release in five years, and their thirteenth album over all. They will debut the new tunes for a devoted, minimal crowd of 3,000 (which is nothing compared to their typically massive concerts) at the Roundhouse in Camden during the iTunes Festival. The thirty day festival will take place all throughout September – many huge names like Coldplay, Beck, Pharrell and Sam Smith are performing as well.

The record, which hasn’t yet been named, was scheduled for release in March, but lead singer and Dubliner Bono was reported to have experienced a serious case of writer’s block, causing the delay.

A source told The Sun, “it’s taken a long time and Bono didn’t find it easy.” The men feel confident in the results, however, and are sure it will be worth the wait.
