Rock and roll legends AC/DC might treat us with some new music soon. Rumors that the Australian rockers are working on new songs started circling in late 2018 and this could well be true according to the band’s longtime engineer Mike Fraser.

Fraser recently had a chat with Tony “Jack the Bear” Mantz on his podcast Mastering Music Mastering Life and confirmed that AC/DC was recently in the studio “doing something.”

“Well, yeah, I could say that we’ve been in the studio doing something,” said Fraser. “What’s come of that I can’t discuss yet.”

When asked if Brian Johnson, who left the band in 2016 due to hearing problems, is signing the vocals again, Fraser responded: “I think so.”

Mike Fraser started working with AC/DC in 1990 when he mixed and engineered their twelfth studio album The Razors Edge. Fraser went on to collaborate with the band on four more studio albums while also working with them on several other releases.

You can check out Fraser’ full Mastering Music Mastering Life interview in the video below. He starts talking about AC/DC around 37:30 mark.

AC/DC’s last studio album came in 2014 when they released Rock or Bust. The album received favorable reviews from the critics while reaching No. 3 on US Billboard 200 and UK Charts. There were numerous speculations in the past several years that the band might release a follow-up, but the members of the group remained tight-lipped about such plans.
