"We are hearing from a reliable source inside the AC/DC camp that Angus Young is working on a new AC/DC Album that will be dedicated to his brother, the late Malcolm Young," JAM says in their statement. "Here’s the exciting part... the new recordings will include Malcolm Young playing rhythm guitar on ALL TRACKS!"

According to JAM's source, Angus and Malcolm had recorded hundreds of songs together five years before the release of Black Ice. Now Angus has chosen the best of those songs for their new album with all of Malcolm's best recorded tracks.
