AC/DC Premieres New Music Video for “Shot In The Dark”
- Australian rock band AC/DC announced their seventeenth studio album “Power Up” on November 13, 2020. It is their first LP in six years.
From the album, the lead single “Shot In The Dark” was released earlier this month.
Lead guitarist Angus Young told Rolling Stone about the song in an interview, “It's got that great AC/DC vibe about it, great swagger, and a good AC/DC rock & roll chant, the title is a little bit cheeky because we all like a little nip [of alcohol] in the night or a few shots in the dark. I was very glad when the record company heard it [that] they felt it was a very strong song and should be the first one that people hear.”
The band dropped a new music video for the song on October 26th. Directed by the band's longtime collaborator David Mallet.
The new album will be the band's first album since the death of their original rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young in 2017 and serves as a tribute to him.
“I remember visiting with him after he had an operation,” Angus Young said. “This is when he still had the capability to talk. He said to me, 'Don't worry. I'll be there fighting for you.' He always backed us.”
“He's the founder of this whole thing, AC/DC” he continued. “At the very beginning [of the band] I said to him, 'What are we going to do?' He said, 'I know what we're going to do. We're going to do some rough, raw rock & roll.'”
