The new video for ELO’s classic song "Mr. Blue Sky" - featured on forthcoming LP "Mr. Blue Sky - The Very Best of ELO", out October 8th (Oct. 5th in Germany and Oct. 9th in North America) on Frontiers Records – has premiered exclusively on www.thequietus.com.

An animated trip in Technicolor with Jeff Lynne at the helm, watch the video here: http://thequietus.com/articles/10161-watch-electric-light-orchestra-very-best-of-mr-blue-sky-jeff-lynne-long-wave

Jeff Lynne is the legendary founder of Electric Light Orchestra and collaborator and producer of many greats including The Beatles, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Tom Petty and Joe Walsh.

On October 8th he releases solo disc "Long Wave" on Frontiers Records in the UK, his first in over 20 years and a heartfelt and vivid tribute to some of the songs that originally inspired him, including a few of his favourite gems from the 60s, such as the first single "Mercy, Mercy," as well as "Let It Rock" and "So Sad".

To celebrate the Electric Light Orchestra's 40th anniversary, Jeff Lynne has revisited and recorded brand new versions of some of their back catalogue for Mr. Blue Sky - The Very Best Of Electric Light Orchestra, out on October 8 in the UK via Frontiers Records.

These two releases are also available in limited edition vinyl.

Meanwhile, Lynne’s illuminating and entertaining documentary Mr. Blue Sky: The Story of Jeff Lynne and ELO gets to the heart of who Jeff Lynne is and how he has had such a tremendous musical influence on our world. The answer - as told by the British artist himself and such distinguished collaborators and friends as Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Tom Petty, Joe Walsh, Olivia and Dhani Harrison, Barbara Orbison and Eric Idle - is that Lynne is a true man of music for whom the recording studio is his greatest instrument.

All this marks the 40th anniversary of ELO, a legacy which will be further celebrated with releases in 2013 including "ELO Live!" plus expanded reissues of ELO’s 2001 album "Zoom" and Lynne’s first solo album in 1990, "Armchair Theatre".
