Available for the first time, the 90-minute feature documentary, Mr. Blue Sky: The Story of Jeff Lynne & ELO, will be released via iTunes Tuesday, December 18. 

The film is not just an illuminating and entertaining new documentary about one of popular music’s greatest stories never told. It’s a kind of mystery movie that once and for all explains an enduring musical mystery: who is this man, Jeff Lynne, and how has he had such a tremendous musical influence on our world?

The answer--as told by Lynne himself and such distinguished collaborators and friends of Jeff 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.

Written and directed by Martyn Atkins, Mr. Blue Sky: The Story of Jeff Lynne & ELO sheds new light on both this witty, gifted artist, and the singularly accomplished and beloved art through which he continues to speak to the world so powerfully.
