Long Wave is the second solo album recorded by British singer-songwriter Jeff Lynne, originally released in October 2012 via Big Trilby Records and Frontiers Records.

Jeff Lynne is an English songwriter, composer, arranger, singer, multi-instrumentalist and record producer who gained fame in the 1970s as the leader and sole constant member of Electric Light Orchestra (ELO). In 1988, under the pseudonyms Otis Wilbury and Clayton Wilbury, he co-founded the supergroup Traveling Wilburys with George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty.

After ELO's original disbandment in 1986, Lynne released two solo albums: Armchair Theatre (1990) and Long Wave (2012). In addition, he began producing various artists, with his songwriting and production collaborations with ex-Beatles leading him to co-produce their mid-1990s reunion singles Free as a Bird (1995) and Real Love (1996).

The album Long Wave contains cover versions of songs that influenced Lynne's songwriting whilst growing up and residing in Birmingham and was recorded between 2010 and 2012.

Lynne said of the album: "I call this new album Long Wave because all of the songs I sing on it are the ones heard on long wave radio when I was a kid growing up in Birmingham, UK. These songs take me back to that feeling of freedom in those days and summon up the feeling of first hearing those powerful waves of music coming in on my old crystal set. My dad also had the radio on all the time, so some of these songs have been stuck in my head for 50 years. You can only imagine how great it felt to finally get them out of my head after all these years."

The album debuted at number 7 on the UK Albums Chart and at number 1 on the UK Top 40 Independent Albums Chart, then also at number 133 on the US Billboard 200 albums chart, at number 33 on the Billboard Top Independent Albums chart and at number 48 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums chart.

At Last was scheduled to be the first UK and Mercy Mercy the first US single issued from the album.

Check out a couple of tracks from the album:  She, So Sad, Mercy, Mercy, Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered and Smile.

This LP Record is a Limited Edition Clear Vinyl Reissue (2016) on 140 Gram Clear Vinyl housed in a Gatefold Sleeve, pressed in Europe.
