The long-awaited and highly anticipated studio album from AC/DC, PWR UP, is set to release November 13. With the release of the album overhead, the band has announced that their first single from the album, “Shot in the Dark,” will be released tomorrow — October 7 — at midnight.
As a follow up to the 2014 Rock or Bust, the album brings back Brian Johnson (vocals), Phil Rudd (drums), Cliff Williams (bass), Angus Young (guitar), and Stevie Young (guitar). In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Angus said the album is comprised of unreleased songs that he and his brother, Malcolm, wrote together before his tragic passing in 2017. “This record is pretty much a dedication to Malcolm, my brother,” Angus told Rolling Stone. “It’s a tribute for him like Back in Black was a tribute to Bon Scott.”
