Release Date: November 17, 2023
Label: American Laundromat
Juliana Hatfield covers the songs of Jeff Lynne (Electric Light Orchestra) on her new album Juliana Hatfield Sings ELO.
American Laundromat Records is thrilled to announce the third installment from Juliana Hatfield’s covers series with Juliana Hatfield Sings ELO. Her covers series aims “to go deep into covering artists that were important to me in my formative years,” remarked Juliana, with each album and its celebrated artist thoughtfully chosen and curated. Preceded by Juliana Hatfield Sings Olivia Newton-John (2018), and Juliana Hatfield Sings The Police (2019), Juliana Hatfield Sings ELO creates a trifecta of pop/rock icons that have served as inspiration.
Juliana previously noted to Billboard, “Recording covers is like a working vacation. It’s fun, and it also informs my own stuff afterwards. ELO songs were always coming on the radio when I was growing up. They were a reliable source of pleasure and fascination,” she explains. “With this album of covers I wanted to get my hands deep into some of the massive ‘70s hits but I am also shining a light on some of the later work… My task was to try and break all the things down and reconstruct them subtly until they felt like mine.”
Sings ELO finds Juliana celebrating Jeff Lynne's rock classics like "Can't Get It Out Of My Head," "Showdown," "Strange Magic," "Don't Bring Me Down," "Telephone Line," and more.
You can find the limited edition metallic gold vinyl version at an indepedent record store near you.
Also vailable on multiple special edition formats here, and the first single, "Don't Bring Me Down" can be streamed and downloaded here.
