Bono told David Letterman last week that a new U2 album will be released when God tells them to.

It seems that God has spoken to either U2 or record company executives because a report from Roger Friedman at says that the album should be out in the early spring of next year.

The unnamed album will be the band's thirteenth studio effort and their first since 2009's No Line on the Horizon.
