AC/DC Releases New Album “POWER UP”: Streaming
- Australian rock band AC/DC released their seventeenth studio album “Power Up” on November 13th. It is their first album in six years.
The album is dedicated to guitarist and co-founder Malcolm Young, who died on November 18, 2017 at the age of 64.
The album comprises of 12-track, including songs Malcolm Young and his brother Angus Young worked on together back in 2007 and 2008.
“These ideas came from just before we did Black Ice, when me and Malcolm had been in the studio for a long time just writing songs,” Angus Young said. “We had so much material.”
The band recorded the album over a six-week period in August and September 2018 with producer Brendan O'Brien.
Also, former members Brian Johnson (vocals) and Phil Rudd (drums) were back and working with the band for the album.
Angus Young explained about the album in an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music, “I get very excited with doing something new and going, ‘Well, it's AC/DC, but it's got a little bit of a different angle on it.’ That's always, for me, the big puzzle, finding something that's AC/DC, but it's something you've not heard AC/DC done before. You try to look for new ways of doing riffs and you experiment a little bit with those, but then when you get something, you go, ‘That's definitely AC/DC,’ and you know that you've cracked the puzzle there.”
