'Back in Black' is the seventh studio album by Australian rockers AC/DC, first released 25 July 1980. It was the first AC/DC album recorded without former lead singer Bon Scott, who died on 19 February at the age of 33, and was dedicated to him.
The band considered disbanding following his death, but they ultimately decided to continue, with encouragement from Scott's parents, and shortly thereafter hired Brian Johnson as their new lead singer and lyricist.
Produced by Robert John "Mutt" Lange, the album was released by Albert Productions and Atlantic Records. 'Back in Black' was recorded over seven weeks in the Bahamas in spring 1980. Newly appointed singer Brian Johnson penned the album's lyrics and melodies, while guitarists Angus and Malcolm Young composed the music.
Their sixth international release, 'Back in Black' was an unprecedented success: it has sold an estimated 50 million copies worldwide. The album received positive critical reception at the time of its release, and it has since been included on numerous lists of "greatest" albums.
