Malcolm Young Credited as Co-Writer for Every Song on New AC/DC Album

"When I went through and listened to them, I said, ‘If I do anything in my life, I have to get these tracks down and get these tracks out'."

AC/DC guitarist Malcolm Young passed away in 2017 after a battle with dementia. There were rumors floating around that Malcolm's playing was featured on AC/DC's new album PWR UP, but the band has since confirmed only his writing contributions made it to the record.

Malcolm's brother and AC/DC lead guitarist Angus Young recently spoke to Rolling Stone, saying that Malcolm is credited as a co-writer for every single song on PWR UP.

"There was a lot of great song ideas at that time," Angus said. "At that time he said to me, ‘We'll leave these songs for now. If we keep going, we'll be overboard. We'll get them on the next one'."

"That always stuck with me. When I went through and listened to them, I said, ‘If I do anything in my life, I have to get these tracks down and get these tracks out'."

The new AC/DC album features vocalist Brian Johnson drummer Phil Rudd, bassist Cliff Williams, and guitarists Angus Young and Stevie Young. Of course, Stevie Young has been filling in for his uncle Malcolm Young since 2014. PWR UP is out November 13. Pre-orders are available here. You can also check out the band's debut single "Shot In The Dark" below.
