FROM OUT OF NOWHERE - #1

FROM OUT OF NOWHERE - UK charts


 From Out Of Nowhere is having a strong first week in terms of sales.  But in the UK, a wild development may help Jeff Lynne achieve another major milestone.  Music Week is reporting that the current front-runner for #1 is a charity-based various-artists collection for Children In Need and is being moved from contention for the week's #1 album as it's being re-classified as a compilation.  With From Out Of Nowhere currently sitting at #2, the chances that there will awesome news by the end of this week looks a little more likely.

On iTunes in the USA, I noticed From Out Of Nowhere get as high as #5.

And for the record, the new revised Jeff Lynne's ELO website is up and running.

FROM OUT OF NOWHERE - official audio


FROM OUT OF NOWHERE - formats

From Amazon:
From Out Of Nowhere is the new album from Rock & Roll Hall of Famer and music legend Jeff Lynne, and follows up a remarkable run of sold out European and American tours. Jeff Lynne's ELO, whose music has touched fans deeply across three generations now, has found himself in recent years at the peak of his powers as a songwriter, musician and producer. This new collection features a buoyant title song which opens the ten-track record including the wistful "Help Yourself" to the celebratory "Down Came the Rain" to the churning rocker "One More Time" to the sweet closer, "Songbird." As does its predecessor, 2015's Alone in the Universe, From Out Of Nowhere shows Lynne finding new facets to his signature sound, at once drawing on his globally loved legacy and forging new paths in both sounds and emotions. Once again, he plays nearly every note of the music on guitars, bass, piano, drums, keyboards and vibes, as well as singing all of the lead and layered harmony vocals. Steve Jay, who also engineered the album, adds some percussion.
