#979: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! BBC Radio 2's Chris Evans duly played, as promised, the brand new Jeff Lynne's ELO track "When I Was A Boy" - taken from the forthcoming new album "Alone In The Universe" - at 7:40AM this morning.
"Alone in the Universe" ~ "When I Was A Boy" [3:12] ~ "Love And Rain" ~ "Faultline" ~ "Dirty To The Bone" ~ "When The Night Comes" [3:22] ~ "Blue" ~ "The Sun Will Shine On You" [3:29] ~ "Ain't It A Drag" ~ "All My Life" ~ "I'm Leaving You" ~ "One Step At A Time"
The new track is full of those familiar and loved Jeff Lynne trademark melodies, sentimental if not moving lyrics and the trademark production values of the ELO maestro. For Yours Truly KJS, it's another nod to the "Long Wave" days of his boyhood and a homage to the late, great John Lennon.
New single "When I Was A Boy" [you can listen to it here too] is released tomorrow Friday 25th September with "Alone In The Universe" also available to pre-order in download, CD and 180g vinyl formats from the same date via these links thus:
