According to JAM Magazine, AC / DC’s new album will feature recordings by brothers Angus and Malcolm Young in 2003 on all songs on the new album.
The brothers lived together between the releases of the Stiff Upper Lip and Black Ice albums and composed hundreds of songs. Some of them have been recorded and will be used on the new album.
Phil Rudd, Cliff Williams and Brian Johnson are helping Angus in choosing which songs will be used on the album and which Malcolm recordings should come in.
The new album will be dedicated to Malcolm Young who died in November 2017. Last month, rumors of AC / DC have entered the studio began to circulate and photos of the members at Warehouse Studios were disclosed. The studio in Vancouver was used in recording the last 3 albums of AC / DC.
The JAM Magazine article can be read in full below and says:
“We hear from a reliable source from within AC / DC that Angus Young is working on a new album that will be dedicated to his brother, the late Malcolm Young.
The Coolest Part: The new recordings will include Malcolm Young playing guitar!
5 years before the 15th. AC / DC studio album Black Ice, Angus and Malcolm Young lived together and wrote hundreds of songs, many of which were recorded and kept until now.
Angus has decided to select the best tracks from these recordings and is now in the studio recording and mixing with his buddies Phil Rudd, Cliff Williams and yes, Brian Johnson on vocals. We still don’t know when the release date will be announced.
