NEW YORK and CUPERTINO, California—November 19, 2012—Columbia Records and Apple® today announced that AC/DC’s entire catalog is now available digitally for the first time exclusively on the iTunes Store® worldwide (www.itunes.com). From their 1976 debut High Voltage to seminal classic Back In Black and 2008 smash hit Black Ice, every one of AC/DC’s 16 studio albums, along with four live albums and three compilation albums, are available for the first time ever on the iTunes Store. All tracks are Mastered for iTunes®, and fans have the ability to download full albums or simply purchase their favorite individual songs. Fans can also choose from two specially packaged digital compilations: The Complete Collection, the complete iTunes-exclusive AC/DC catalog; and The Collection, which includes all 16 studio albums.
The full catalog which has all been Mastered for iTunes includes collections, 16 studio albums, 4 live albums, and 3 compilation albums. AC/DC was seen as one of the last hold-outs from releasing their music digitally. The Beatles made it onto iTunes almost exactly two years ago.
