Jeff Lynne fans have a lot to be excited about. Thursday, he annouced that Jeff Lynne’s ELO will release the first ELO album in over a decade.
Called Alone in the Universe, the album will debut Nov. 13 via Columbia Records and is available for pre-order Friday. He also dropped the collection’s first single, “When I Was A Boy,” streaming below.
“Music is such a powerful force in our lives. A good song can make people feel much less alone in this universe,” Lynne said in a press release. “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.”
Earlier this year Lynne performed “Evil Woman” and “Mr. Blue Sky” at the Grammys. Lynne’s credentials also include producing for the Beatles, Sam Smith, Tom Petty, and Joe Walsh.
