AC/DC reportedly making new album using recordings of the late Malcolm Young

AC DC 03/09/2018

AC/DC's guitarist passed away last year and now the remaining members are allegedly working on a new album using recordings of the late Malcolm Young.

On every god damn track. 

The news comes from “a reliable source inside the AC/DC camp”, as quoted by Dallas based music media JAM Magazine. 

According to JAM's source, Young’s brother Angus is slaving away on a new AC/DC album,  dedicated to Malcolm’s memory. 

They literally wrote hundreds of songs, many were recorded and have been stashed away until now.


Malcolm died last November after retiring from the band due to early onset dementia.

Reportedly Malcolm recorded the material that's going on this new album along with his brother in the early 2000s, ‘five years prior’ to their 2008 album ‘Black Ice’.

Although this all sounds interesting, we'll believe it when we actually hear it.

The source told JAM: “Turns out, five years prior to the ‘Black Ice’ LP, AC/DC’s 15th studio release, Angus and Malcolm Young lived to together [sic] where they literally wrote hundreds of songs, many were recorded and have been stashed away until now.

“Angus has decided to selected [sic] the best tracks from those recordings that Malcolm played on and is now back in the studio recording and mixing them with fellow band mates Phil Rudd, Cliff Williams and yes, Brian Johnson on vocals.”
