Rumors have been flying that AC/DC were working on new music, and now comes further proof that the band are preparing a new album. Longtime engineer Mike Fraser has confirmed the band was “doing something” in the studio. Asked about the rumors of a new AC/DC album in a recent interview, Fraser replied, “Well, yeah, I could say that we’ve been in the studio doing something. What’s come of that I can’t discuss yet.” Asked if Johnson was singing, he said, “I think so,” with a laugh.
Speculation began last year after photographs of various band members were seen in the vicinity of Warehouse Studios in Vancouver, where they’ve recorded in the past. Angus Young’s lineup appeared to include singer Brian Johnson and drummer Phil Rudd, with bassist Cliff Williams added to the list later. Angus’ nephew Stevie Young was thought to have completed the band, replacing his uncle, the late Malcolm Young, as he had since 2016.
