Showdown: Another Jeff Lynne Album Due Next Year?
#400: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! My good friend and ELO gig buddy Christian 'Poker' Evans has alerted Yours Truly KJS and ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) to this interesting news via the Showdown mailing list, posted earlier today thus:
"There's a rumour that there are actually three new albums in the works ... "Long Wave" and "Mr. Blue Sky" due out next month, and another album of new songs coming out in 2013. Eight tracks finished so far. Who started this rumour? Jeff did! (On) Wednesday night at the debut screening of "Mr. Blue Sky: The Story of Jeff Lynne and ELO" at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles!"
With the twin releases in October to look forward to together with the much anticipated "Armchair Theatre" and "Zoom" expanded editions, an "ELO Live" album plus a possible follow-up to "Long Wave" and now an album of Jeff Lynne original compositions, the next year (or whenever) looks like being the busiest for the ELO maestro from since "When Time Stood Still". You can rely on ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) to keep you posted of any further developments!
Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 13-Sep-2012
