The return of ELO

Jeff Lynne’s ELO is set to deliver the first album of new ELO music in 15 years - Alone In The Universe, set for global release Nov. 13 on Columbia Records.    

As with ELO’s previous albums, Jeff Lynne continues to serve as 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. in the 1970s and '80s.
“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,” said Lynne.

Track listing:

1. When I Was a Boy
2. Love and Rain
3. Dirty to the Bone
4. When the Night Comes
5. The Sun Will Shine on You
6. Ain't It a Drag
7. All My Life
8. I'm Leaving You
9. One Step at a Time
10. Alone in the Universe
11. Fault Line
12. Blue
