Electric Light Orchestra signs record deal, will release first album in over a decade



ELOElectric Light Orchestra is back and will release their first album in 15 years after signing a record deal with Columbia Records.

“Known 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,” the band’s web site reads. “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.”

ELO has 20 Billboard top 40 singles (the most ever for a band without having a number one single) and had 27 top 40 singles in the US and UK between 1972 and 1986. Here are some of ELO’s biggest hits:
