AC/DC have announced that they will be releasing their first live album in 20 years in November.

The album, which is titled 'AC/DC Live At River Plate', was recorded in Argentina at the River Plate Stadium in Buenos Aires' in December 2009. The band played to nearly 200,000 people over the course of the three nights they played at the stadium.

The 19-track collection was previously released as a live DVD in May last year, but will now be made available as a live album on November 19. It will be released as a two-disc CD and a three-disc red vinyl package, featuring multiple album covers and a special 24-page booklet.

It is the band's first full-length live album since 1992's 'AC/DC Live'. They released two live discs in 1997 as part of their 'Bonfire' boxset, but this is the first stand-alone live release since 'AC/DC Live'.

AC/DC have said recently 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 denied it would be released that soon, saying: 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."

The tracklisting for 'AC/DC Live At River Plate' is as follows:

'Rock N Roll Train'
'Hell Ain’t A Bad Place To Be'
'Back In Black'
'Big Jack'
'Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap'
'Shot Down In Flames'
