You know what we need in 2020? Some new AC/DC. Listen to the new single “Shot in the Dark.”

This year has been a total shitshow, so it’s time to break out the comfort food. AC/DC is coming to the rescue with some familiar-sounding riff-rock that will remind of The Before Times.

Power Up, AC/DC’s seventeenth album, will be out November 13. And if you haven’t heard, Brian Johnson’s ears are much better and he’s back in the band. So is drummer Phil Rudd after a few years in the wilderness. And bass player Cliff Williams have overcome a bad case of vertigo.

There will be multiple configurations of Power Up, of course. That’s how you do things these days. A special edition box will come with a button on the side that will cause the AC/DC logo on the front to flash while the opening bits of “Shot in the Dark” plays from a built-in speaker. And don’t worry about it running out of power because it comes with a USB charging port.
