AC/DC has released “Realize,” the second full track preview from their new album, Power Up, which comes out this Friday (November 13.)

Embedded below, “Realize” follows the release of lead single and the tease of  “Realize” is available for streaming/download here.

Singer Brian Johnson said in a recent interview with NME, “Most of ‘Power Up’ came from ideas before [2008 album] ‘Black Ice’, when Malcolm and Angus would sit together for five days a week and run through ideas. Malcolm was meticulous, he’d write down everything and when exactly they’d done it; categorize it. There’s more than enough for another album, probably two.”

Malcolm Young, who passed away in November 2017 from dementia, served as the main inspiration behind AC/DC’s 17th studio album. Angus Young said in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, “This record is pretty much a dedication to Malcolm, my brother. It’s a tribute for him like ‘Back in Black’ was a tribute to Bon Scott.”

Power Up is available for pre-save on major digital platforms here. The album is also available for pre-order in physical formats at where fans can find the album on CD, vinyl and special light-up box set that also comes with a 20-page booklet.
