Jeff Lynne’s ELO scores first UK No. 1 studio album in almost 40 years

Jeff Lynne’s ELO has scored their first UK No. 1 studio album in almost 40 years with “From Out Of Nowhere.”

According to The Official Charts Company, the project enters atop the UK charts to deliver the band their first No. 1 studio recording since 1981’s “Time.”

ELO were last at Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart in 2016 with their greatest hits collection, “All Over The World: The Very Best Of”, which hit a million sales after ELO’s performance in the Glastonbury legends’ slot.

The follow-up to 2015’s “Alone In The Universe” sees Lynne performing all of the instruments and vocals on the record, save for some percussion by engineer Steve Jay.

“‘From Out of Nowhere' — that’s exactly where it came from,” says Lynne. “That’s the first one I wrote for this album and it’s kind of like that.”
