ELO‘s guiding force, Jeff Lynne, has posted another new song from the revived band’s upcoming album, Alone in the Universe. “When the Night Comes” has a slight reggae feel, backed by Lynne’s knockoff of the Wall of Sound that’s long been an ELO signature.
He tells Entertainment Weekly, “Music is such a powerful force in our lives. A good song can make people feel much less alone in this universe. And trying to create one of those songs somehow makes me feel less alone too. My whole life — from being that kid with a dream in Birmingham [England] right until today — proves how much music can do.”
Alone in the Universe goes on sale November 13th.
