Jeff Lynne will once again try to resurrect the Electric Light Orchestrabanner with the November 13th release of Alone in the Universe, the first ELO album in 14 years and 12th overall. The album’s first single, “When I Was a Boy,” is currently streaming.
Lynne says, “Music is such a powerful force in our lives. A good song can make people feel much less alone in this universe. And trying to create one of those songs somehow makes me feel less alone too. My whole life –- from being that kid with a dream in Birmingham right until today –- proves how much music can do.”
ELO’s last album was 2001’s Zoom, and this release follows ELO performances on this year’s Grammy Awards and in London’s Hyde Park in September.
