Available from November 13, Power Up (or PWR/UP, as it has been styled) is the title of this fresh feast, which sees Angus Young on lead axe, Brian Johnson on lead vox, Cliff Williams on bass, Phil Rudd on the kit, and Stevie Young on rhythm guitar reunited with producer Brendan O’Brien (who steered the fellas on 2008’s Black Ice and 2014’s Rock Or Bust).
And of course, there’s special editions galore: you’ve got CD, JB-exclusive transparent yellow vinyl, limited edition picture disc vinyl, and for the mega-fans: the Lightbox Deluxe Edition. It’s a box containing the full CD package, a 20-page booklet with exclusive photos, and – get this – when you smash that button on the side of the box, a neon AC/DC logo sign lights up (it runs on a USB cable, so you can keep it on constant display) and the opening bars of Shot In The Dark blast forth from a hidden speaker.
“Fine, fine, but I’m an AC/DC devotee and I’ve never heard of Shot In The Dark,” you say.
Well, then get acquainted with the first single from PWR/UP below.
PWR/UP by AC/DC is available November 13 via Sony.
