AC/DC released their video for “Through The Mists Of Time” from their recent album “Power Up”.
The concept was an idea of guitarist Angus Young, director Najeeb Tarazi and creative director Josh Cheuse used footage shot by Clemens Habicht of each of the five bandmembers in five separate shoots around the world. They then enlisted Mathematic, a Paris-based visual effects studio, to combine all the elements so the band could take the stage together to perform the fan favorite from “Power Up”, almost one year to the day that the highly anticipated album was announced.
“The riff for ‘Through The Mists Of Time’ came out, and Angus wrote the lyrics for that song, and I believe he captured everything — about the early days when the band started, when rock and roll was just carefree, when nobody gave a flying thought about anything except just having a good time and playing. And all this lovely innocence was gone. And I think [the lyrics] encapsulated [the sentiment]. To tell you the truth, every time I hear it, I still get a goosebumps, and it’s a tribute to Malcolm: ‘Through The Mists Of Time’. And it’s different. I don’t know if it’s different from anything we’ve done before, but it certainly stands apart.” Brian Johnson told Rock X last year.
