    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    “Play Ball” is a single by Australian hard rock band AC/DC, and the debut single from their 2014 album Rock or Bust. It was first used on 27 September 2014 in a trailer for Major League Baseball on TBS postseason coverage, and the single was released on 7 October.

    AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd was absent from the video shoot for the single, and was replaced by Welshman Bob Richards, who had previously played with Man, Adrian Smith, Asia and Shogun.

Overview

    Due to be released on 28 November 2014 in Australia and on 2 December 2014 elsewhere, Rock or Bust will mark the band’s first original recordings since 2008’s Black Ice.

    Rock or Bust will be the band’s first album without founding member and rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young, who left the band in 2014 for health reasons. Malcolm’s departure was later clarified by the band and their management, saying that Malcolm was officially diagnosed with dementia and will possibly never play again.

    Before the album was officially announced, Brian Johnson admitted that it was difficult to make the album without Malcolm Young. He brought about the idea that the album could be called Man Down, but believed the title felt too negative towards Malcolm’s situation and overall health.

    On 6 November 2014, drummer Phil Rudd was arrested for attempting to procure the murder of two men. AC/DC made a statement the same day: “We’ve only become aware of Phil’s arrest as the news was breaking. We have no further comment. Phil’s absence will not affect the release of our new album Rock or Bust and upcoming tour next year.” It is not yet clear whether Rudd will remain with the band or not, or who might be his replacement. The attempted procurement charge against Rudd was dropped the following day; charges of possession of methamphetamine and possession of cannabis and a charge of threatening to kill remained.

    In 2015, the band will embark on a world tour to promote Rock or Bust and celebrate the band’s 40th anniversary. Malcolm Young will be replaced by his and Angus’ nephew, Stevie Young.

Recording

    The album was recorded at Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, Canada with producer Brendan O’Brien and mixer Mike Fraser. When Rudd was ten days late for the recording sessions, O’Brien was ready to replace him with another drummer, but Rudd arrived and recorded his parts.

    The songs were constructed largely by Angus, from material accumulated by the brothers during the recording of previous albums. Angus used a device called The Schaffer Replica on several tracks; the device was built for him by AC/DC long time fanatic Fil “SoloDallas” Olivieri to replicate the sound of an original wireless device used in the 1970s and 1980s by Angus that gave him part of his peculiar sound.
