Earlier this week, AC/DC sprang back to life in a big — and loud — way with “Shot in the Dark,” the Australian rock legends‘ brand new song:

It’s a selection from a new AC/DC album titled Power Up, which will be the band’s first since 2014’s Rock or Bust and finds singer Brian Johnson, guitarist Angus Young, guitarist Stevie Young (nephew of Malcolm), bassist Cliff Williams and drummer Phil Rudd back together again.

Power Up will be released on Nov. 13.

The song’s only been out in the wild for a few days, but that’s all it took for a 1o-year-old guitarist named Jayden Tatasciore to master it. Here’s the kid absolutely SHREDDING the main guitar riff — and doing his best Angus Young impression all the while:

VERY nicely done, Jayden! It’s worth pointing out that the kid’s got a knack for Angus impressions …

As for Power Up, the record is a special one for AC/DC, effectively a tribute to the late Malcolm Young.

Said Angus to Rolling Stone recently regarding the new activity:

“It’s been a long, long road,” says Angus on the phone from his home in Australia. “But it’s good that everyone came on board and we get to pump out a bit of new rock & roll for the world. At this time, with the pandemic, hopefully it gives people a few hours of toe-tapping enjoyment.”

Notably, every song on Power Up is credited to Angus and Malcolm Young:

“This record is pretty much a dedication to Malcolm, my brother,” Angus told Rolling Stone. “It’s a tribute for him like Back in Black was a tribute to Bon Scott.”
