AC/DC cover etc.

TUESDAY MORNING ROCK, PART ONE: You know what? We don't even wanna see your album cover unless it blows up. I mean, if Columbia's AC/DC can make theirs appear to fly apart in a glorious burst, why can't your singer/songwriter? What? We can't hear you because we're cranking some AC/DC. Anyway, to commemorate the start of pre-orders for the Australian rock giants' new set, the Brendan O'Brien-produced Rock or Bust (streeting on 12/2), they've unveiled not only this cover art (with "lenticular" 3D effect) but also a track list (song titles include "Got Some Rock & Roll Thunder," "Baptism by Fire" and our favorite, "Emission Control"). The set is the rockers' first album of new material since 2008's Black Ice, which has sold some 8 million copies globally. Fans who order the new set at ACDC.com or other digital outlets will get the instant-grat track "Play Ball," which also begins spinning on iHeart rock formats today as part of Turner Sports' MLB postseason campaign. And speaking of the postseason and things flying apart, how about those Dodgers? (10/7a)
