Jeff Lynne signs to Columbia; new ELO record to follow!

After Jeff Lynne dusted off the old Electric Light Orchestra moniker for the first show billed as such in thirty years, 2014’s wildly successful Hyde Park show, rumors abounded of a tour and potential new recordings. Well, it appears that at least half of that rumor is manifesting as Lynne just inked a contract for ELO with Columbia Records. The official press release offers no concrete information as to a timeline, band lineup, length of contract, etc., but with the band’s catalog achieving a resurgence in popularity via it’s use in TV, film and commercials, and the support of a major record label, it would seem that he time is right for Jeff Lynne renaissance. I for one, wholly endorse that, and have high hopes of attending a show, should there be a tour. I get a… strange magic!
