AC/DC's longtime engineer Mike Fraser has spoken to the AC/DCFans.Net podcast about his involvement with the band's much-anticipated comeback album. The follow-up to 2014's "Rock Or Bust" will feature AC/DC's 2020 lineup of Brian Johnson (vocals), Phil Rudd (drums), Cliff Williams (bass), Angus Young (guitar) and Stevie Young (guitar). The term "PWR/UP", which is featured in several of AC/DC's teasers is apparently the title of the LP, although there has been no announcement yet as to when it might be coming
According to Fraser, the songwriting and recording process for "PWR/UP" was "very much the same" as that for "Rock Or Bust". "I think Angus kind of came into this with a lot of ideas and riffs and not too many completed songs," he said. "But that was similar on 'Rock Or Bust'. 'Cause him and Malcolm had written tons of songs before Mal got sick and eventually passed away. So he's got a whole treasure trove of ideas and riffs and all that. So he's probably spent a few years before we came in to do this record pooling ideas together and all that, and then when he came into the studio here, he just sat down with a whole suitcase full of little demo things he had done. And him and Brendan O'Brien, who produced the record, would sift through all the ideas and say, 'Hey, that's great. That's a really good song. Let's put that riff here.' It's just mostly all these great riffs and ideas Ang had. He had — I don't remember exactly — maybe three or four songs sort of completed that they maybe adjusted, added a chorus here or something like that. But yeah, it was just basically from a stockpile of all these riffs and stuff that Angus and Mal had put together over the years. So they had to sort piece the songs together before we'd record them. They'd probably spend a day or so doing that, and we'd come in, blast off the song. And like these guys work, it's pretty much live in the studio. What you hear is what they did, what you get. They fire up pretty quick. They all work really good together, 'cause they've worked together for so long; they're a unit. They try and get as much energy into the song as they can live in the studio, 'cause that's what they are — they are just so great live. So, yeah, it was [pretty] much the same as 'Rock Or Bust'."
