You know him as the drummer of AC/DC, his name is Phil Rudd and he has a new solo album coming out called Head Job, which will be out on August 29.
Triple M Sydney on 104.9 FM will be premiering the track this Friday. Listen from 3pm.
Triple M's Becko caught up with the man from his new home in New Zealand to find out what he's been working on privately with this new album because this has come out of the blue.
At the time we'd heard just the one song, the single "Repo Man", and Phil gave us this warning: "Well standby because most of the stuff on the album is better. I hope everyone thinks this is a great album from start to finish because that's the idea," he said.
"We didn't put anything on there that we didn't like. There's no filler."
From the rollicking first single “Repo Man” to the rocking title track “Head Job”, from the upbeat dirgy groove of “Bad Move” to the relationship-driven “Crazy” Rudd has delivered a very personal album “about the s*** that goes on.

New AC/DC Album
We can't let him go without talking about the new AC/DC album which they've officially finished at Bryan Adams' studio in Vancouver. It's where they've done the last three albums including their 2009's Black Ice.
"We're happy to have it done and it's very good, by the way," he said.
