Since the release of AC/DC’s most recent studio album, ‘Power Up,’ in 2020, we haven’t heard anything regarding the group’s upcoming recording projects. But in a recent interview with the Fuelling Around podcast, Brian Johnson made a suggestion that they would produce new content soon.
This will be the Australian band’s first live performance since 2016 when they take the stage at the Power Trip Festival, which they announced two months ago. They’re all eager to reunite, according to Johnson, and that reunion may also result in some music since their creative juices are flowing:
“It does take a lot of time to get a band like AC/DC together again. Most of the crew were out working with other people. Trying to get those guys back together again was tough, but I’ve got my fingers crossed – everything is going ok. The most important thing about it all is the eagerness we all feel; the juices are running again.”
The band’s leader also stated his enthusiasm about sharing the stage at the next event with Ozzy Osbourne, Guns N’ Roses, and Metallica:
“It’s all rock and roll bands; it’s fantastic. I think it’s just a statement to say that rock and roll is a legitimate form of music. It really has made a difference. Ozzy is coming out of retirement, so I’ll be able to see my old pals again.
The Guns N’ Roses boys, the Metallica boys, and the Iron Maiden boys – all in one field, boy, what a party! It’s going to be in a beautiful valley near Coachella, but I don’t get involved in that kind of thing. I just like to turn up, get up and just rock my little socks off until I drop.”
The singer was once more questioned about AC/DC’s intentions to record any new songs in an interview with Eddie Trunk conducted last year. However, he had kept it a secret since he had been warned not to talk about it. Johnson remarked:
“It’s gettin’ tabloidy here. You’re gettin’ tabloidy. If I say one thing, it’ll be blown out of all proportion. You just can’t afford to talk now. There’s too much blabber on the Internet. And I’m not on any kind of Face-thing or social media at all and never have been. It’s just gossip.”
