Jeff Lynne’s ELO has issued a lyric video for “One Step At A Time,” the latest track from their recently-released album “Alone In The Universe.”
The song follows the project’s lead single, “When I Was A Boy”, a slower tune with a Beatles vibe.
“’One Step At A Time’ came to me at a moment when I wanted an uptempo song again," says Lynne. "I started out trying to make a nice chord sequence and melody and then gradually I fit some pieces I had together like a jigsaw puzzle.
“The songs all come together differently, but sometimes they come in bits and pieces."
“Alone In The Universe” marks ELO’s first new music since 2001’s “Zoom” album.
ELO members went their separate ways in 1986, with drummer Bev Bevan carrying on as “ELO Part II” before selling his half of the rights to the ELO brand to Lynne in early 2000.
Encouraged by the success of the box “Flashback”, Lynne released “Zoom” and then, in 2012, issued “Mr, Blue Sky: The Very Best of Electric Light Orchestra”, a package featuring new recordings of the group’s hits by the singer.
Lynne’s ELO will embark on a 2016 tour with shows beginning April 5 in Liverpool, UK.
