The rock legends AC/DC released their most awaited comeback album in six years Power Up in November 2020, and now shared a music video for ‘Realize’. You can watch the video below.
AC/DC’s massive hits Power Up follow-up to 2014’s record “Rock Or Bust”, features a Back In Black era line-up with the late Malcolm Young’s nephew Stevie Young.
While speaking in a recent interview with France’s Heavy TV, Angus Young state about “Realize”. “I remember working with Mal [late AC/DC rhythm guitarist [Malcom Young], and we worked on that track,” he said. “It was another strong idea that he had. For me, I knew how much he really liked it. I remember when we originally were writing it, the effort that he put in, and how he built it up. The thing is, I remember we had the music side of it together, how we wanted to do it. And he gave me his book idea, the chorus, When he gave me the verse idea, of how he wanted the lyric, he sang it to me roughly. And I just kind of thought, how clever is he? He just comes up with something. It was one of those things where I kept repeating it and repeating it in my head.”
Angus continued, “Sometimes I used to think, ‘I don’t know where he pulls these ideas from.’ For him, a song wasn’t a combination of riffs and hooks and that. For him, he just had a kind of natural gift. Whenever he created a song, the parts would all come together – lyrics, music, and even kind of the dynamic of it. So it was never a case with the two of us [where we] just settled for the chords you first hit or something. You went through all the different angles with him. Say you were doing it at that tempo or a different way, sometimes we may even go back to another route and go, ‘Okay, try it from another perspective .’ With this one, though, he had it just so clear, and it suck with me.”
In an earlier October appearance in Interview with Rolling Stones, Angus Young told, “This record is pretty much dedication to Malcolm, my brother. It’s a tribute for him like Back In Black was a tribute to Bon Scott [Original singer of AC/DC].
