 SIGNS WITH COLUMBIA

medium.4hoDKOV9c18yY5o-aUbQsSXqt4A2Dik5HOc2MZ1NsL0Known as one of the most iconic forces in history, Jeff Lynne’s ELO has signed a global deal with Columbia Records and is set to deliver a new album which will be the first new ELO music in 15 years. As with ELO’s previous chart-topping albums, Lynne continues to serve as ELO’s producer, songwriter, arranger, lead singer and guitarist. In September 2014, for the first time in 30 years, Jeff Lynne’s ELO headlined BBC Radio 2’s “Festival In A Day” in London’s famous Hyde Park to a sold- out crowd of 50,000 fans in attendance and nearly a million people tuned in to watch.

Lynne was the creative genius behind ELO which sold more than 50 million albums worldwide, had more than 20 Top 40 Hits across the U.S. and the U.K. and received countless awards and accolades. At the time of ELO’s formation, Lynne had said the goal was to create modern rock and pop songs. A goal that remains true some 30 years later with the creation of new material.

    A fan of Jeff Lynne and ELO since around 1972 I have been on cloud nine since the return of one of my favorite musicians ever to the studio and the stage. Due to limited ticket availability and a debilitating health problem I was not able to attend the NYC show recently although I only live about 75 miles from NYC. I am hoping that Jeff and the amazing new band will come back for a proper showing in North America. In the meantime my spirits are lifted by the great sounds of ‘Alone in the Universe’, {the bands’ first album of all new original tunes since 2001} which in my opinion sounds as great as anything in ELOs incredible repertoire – and that’s saying quite a lot! Welcome back JEFF + RICHARD AND THE NEW ELO!!!
