Have you heard it yet? Today was the day AC/DC – fronted by Geordie boy Brian Johnson – released their new single to radio stations.

And Rock ‘N’ Roll Train, from new album Black Ice, is a slice of pure genius reminding us that eight years is a painfully long time in rock.

Yes that’s how long we’ve been hoping for some fresh material from one of the most influential guitar bands in history. Stiff Upper Lip seems a lifetime away but it seems all good things really do come to those who wait.

With 15 new songs to tackle those lucky enough to have heard the new record in its entireity promise a feast of Young-fuelled fret burning and Johnson growls. Rock ‘N’ Roll Train is the opening track and if it’s a taste of things to come then start salivating.

Back-to-back plays on Nicky Horne’s Planet Rock show tonight proved the importance of anything written by the Aussie gods. And fans can hear the spine tingling new tune on www.acdc.com now.
