NEW ALBUM: Jeff Lynne's ELO "from out of nowhere"
#1
[Image: 220px-Jeff_Lynne%27s_ELO_-_From_Out_of_Nowhere.png]

Spotify listen:

the band's fourteenth album,
well, not a band, a duo now, made up of Lynne and Richard Tandy who was the band's
keyboardist in the 70s and early 80s.
Lynne has one sound, the ELO sound, period, that's not a bad thing. its a winning formula,
and it is and has been for decades, so much so that no matter who Lynne works with their music
ends up sounding like Jeff Lynne.
probably the worlds greatest Beatles tribute band also LOL.
anyway, 
from the cover art through the airtight production to the melodic harmonies and back again.
album would fit nicely between any of their back catalogue.
on the "to purchase" list

the lead off single and title track:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0m4gssjDDM

my favourite: has a bit of a McCartney feel in the verses:

#12 on debut in Australia (stupid Aussies)

#1 on debut in the UK (first #1 album since 1981's "time", but that said, its only their fourth album since that one)
