Though it may be a while before we hear the next AC/DC album, frontman Brian Johnson has reportedly found another outlet for his voice. UltimateClassicRock.com reports that Johnson will be a guest contributor to ‘The Last Ship,’ a soundtrack primarily featuring Sting for a Broadway production of the same name.

It is not known if Johnson’s association will be for one song or more, but a publicist confirmed the cameo. Earlier this year, AC/DC bassist Cliff Williams stated that brothers Angus and Malcolm Young had been working on new material for AC/DC, but suggested that it might be a while before the rest of the band was called in to join them. With the time off continuing, Johnson’s cameo comes with no major schedule conflicts.

As for ‘The Last Ship,’ Sting has been working on a soundtrack for the production, which would mark his first full album of original music since 2003′s ‘Sacred Love’ album. The play, set in a shipyard in England near where Sting was born, is expected to arrive on Broadway in 2014. According to the New York Times, Sting has been working on the music for the production for nearly three years, with the tracks specifically tailored to help move along the plot.

Look for Sting’s ‘The Last Ship,’ featuring several songs used in the musical and a few merely inspired by the production, to arrive in stores Sept. 24.
