AC/DC plot virtual video for next Power Up single

AC/DC singer Brian Johnson reveals the band are planning to create a virtual video for the next single from their newly-released album, “Power Up.”

While the rocker didn’t reveal which song would be featured in the clip, the tune would follow the set’s lead single, “Shot In The Dark”, as the second video from the project.

“The thing is,” explains Johnson in a new video message thanking fans for their support of the record, “none of us have ever done this before, so it's gonna be brilliant, standing like a tit, by yourself, miming on a microphone because you know that we're miming, and we know that you know that we know that you know that we're miming, but still — it's gonna be fun.

“Angus is gonna be playing down in Sydney, Phil's gonna be whacking the drums in New Zealand, and Cliff's gonna be paddling away – he might even come up to join me, 'cause he's not too far down the road. And Stevie somewhere in England, I don't know. We hope to put an exciting video together."

The legendary band’s first release since 2014’s “Rock Or Bust” was produced by Brendan O’Brien and recorded in Vancouver in 2018.

“Power Up” features riffs written by Angus and Malcolm Young during extensive writing sessions around 2008’s “Black Ice”, with every track credited to the both brothers following Malcolm’s passing in 2017 at the age of 64, three years after he retired from the group due to dementia.
