AC/DC premiere Witch’s Spell video

AC/DC are premiering a video for the “Power Up” track, “Witch’s Spell.”

Directed, edited and animated by Wolf & Crow using band performance footage shot by Clemens Habicht, it’s the latest song issued from the band’s seventeenth studio album, which they recorded with producer Brendan O’Brien in Vancouver in 2018.

“Power Up” – which debuted at No. 1 in several countries, including the US, UK and Australia – sees the return of singer Brian Johnson to the lineup after he left the band in 2016 when he was diagnosed with hearing loss issues as a result of an incident while racing (one of his passions outside of music) at the 2008 Watkins Glen International.

While Axl Rose fronted the band for the final series of shows on their “Rock Or Bust” tour, Johnson went on to work with the inventor of in-ear monitors, Asius Technologies founder Stephen Ambrose, to find a technical solution that would allow him to return to performing.

Johnson will publish his autobiography, "The Lives Of Brian", on October 26.
