U2 have confirmed that they will return to their "spiritual home" of Island Records for their upcoming album 13th album, which is speculated to drop in April.

Island were the label who discovered U2 in the late 1970's but Bono and the boys left them around seven years ago when label head Jason Iley left to join Mercury. Dissatisfied with his successor, U2 joined Iley at his new company. Things got interesting earlier this year when Universal closed down Mercury leaving a number of acts, U2 included, in a temporary state of label limbo until this recent announcement. 

Island - who are now headed by new management - will now release the new U2 album, their first since 2009's No Line On The Horizon, which is rumoured to feature Coldplay's Chris Martin in some capacity. 

We wait with interest.
