U2 had delayed the release of its new album because of the election of Donald Trump as president of the United States.

David Evans, also known as guitarist The Edge, told Rolling Stone in an interview published Monday that the band's new album, 'Songs Of Experience', was almost ready to be released when the Republican candidate pulled off a shock victory in November - causing the Irish rock band to reconsider.

'It's like a pendulum has suddenly just taken a huge swing in the other direction,' The Edge said. So the band resolved to put the album 'on ice' for a little while in order to take a second look at the songs and check that they send the right message.

In the meantime, U2 will embark on a special tour to commemorate its 1978 album 'The Joshua Tree', beginning in May in North America before jetting off to Europe.
