Journalist says new AC/DC album has Malcolm Young

With the recent news that Brian Johnson would be back to AC/DC, there is new information about the upcoming album. Rumors that the album is already finalized and will feature pre-recorded riffs from Malcolm Young.


Presenter Eddie Trunk recently discussed his knowledge from the case. He said he has a “very well located and reliable” source that informed him about the band. “He told me the album is ready. They went to that studio in Canada to record,” he said. The album would feature Malcolm Young’s riffs as a form of tribute. “Malcolm recorded a lot of stuff they worked on and incorporated into the album.”

Trunk said he has no more information or details on how or when the album will be released. But for now, there are no plans for any tour.

It’s the same information shared a few days ago by Ex-Guns N’ Roses manager that said:

“So I have a source that will remain nameless but a very, very, well-placed, reliable source regarding AC/DC, who I did run into and ask about AC/DC – this source told me to his knowledge that the album is done, that they went to that studio in Canada, made this record and what people speculated on, meaning these were riffs, ideas and more of a tribute to Malcolm Young is true.

“Meaning that Malcolm had a bunch of stuff recorded that they worked off of and they sort of incorporated the record. So, this is sort of a unity thing to come together, put out some of Malcolm’s music and celebrate AC/DC.

“This source also told me that they don’t know what they are going to do with this record, when and how it’s going to come out and adds that as far as he was aware and he would know, there are no plans for live shows. Now that could change but there are no plans at this moment to play.

“However, there was a recording done and they are going to figure out what they are doing with that. So that’s all he told me. He didn’t tell me about Axl or who is on it, he just basically said: ‘The guys went in, they went in off of some stuff that Malcolm had, it’s a celebration of Malcolm, there is a record done, whether and how that comes out they’re not sure and whether they play or not it’s not sure.’”
