AC/DC have said that their new studio album is at least "a year or two away".

The Australian stadium rockers released their 15th studio album 'Black Ice' in 2008 and their frontman Brian Johnson had previously said that they are keen to start work on the follow-up, even hinting it could be released in 2013.

However guitarist Malcolm Young has played down this suggestion and says that Johnson is ahead of himself with that prediction, reports Classic Rock Magazine.

Asked about when a new AC/DC album was likely to emerge, Young said: "You know what Brian's [Johnson] like. He just says things and then walks away. It’ll be a little while – a year or two anyway. I've been doing some jamming on some song ideas but I do that all the time, as do the rest of the band."

He continued: "We are still working. But we had a long rest between 'Stiff Upper Lip' and 'Black Ice', so I think we need a couple of years to recuperate and work on it a bit more."

AC/DC released a new live DVD 'AC/DC: Live At River Plate' last year.
