Global superstar Stevie Wonder released two new songs on Tuesday evening.
Wonder also announced that he is consider releasing a new compilation EP with the two new songs he has just released.
Wonder released two songs in celebration of his major news: "Can't Put It In The Hands of Fate" featuring Rapsody, Cordae, Chika and Busta Rhymes, and "Where Is Our Love Song", featuring Gary Clark Jr. All the proceeds from the song will go to the charity Feeding America to provide aid during the coronavirus pandemic.
It marks a major move for the 70-year-old, who was signed to Motown Records at the age of 11. Wonder will remain with the Universal music group with his new label.
On departing Motown - which he signed to in 1961 - Wonder said at a press conference this week: "Even though I have left Motown, I never leave Motown".
Sei Young Kim has late birdie run to take Women’s PGA lead
Before Sunday, she held the distinction of being the winningest active player on the LPGA Tour without a major championship. She was runner-up at the 2015 KPMG Women's PGA Championship and tied for second at the Evian Championship in 2018.
According to the musician, he began writing Where Is Our Love Song when he was just 18 years old and has since completed the lyrics.
He said: "Then came this year". "You say you're sick and exhausted of us protesting/ I say not had enough to make a change", he sings on the harmonica-laden track.
Similarly, "Can't Put It in the Hands of Fate" was inspired by the current divisive climate in the US and uncertainty during the COVID-19 pandemic. He sings on the song, "Where are our words with hope?/ Oh how we need those words of hope/ Not the kind of hope that leaves some of us behind/ But the kind of hope that lifts up all humankind". "I see the color of your spirit and soul, and I'm seeing too many spirts and souls that are not about the love that we're supposed to have and feel for one another".
If that plan doesn't proceed, Wonder says he may include them on his long-in-gestation album, Through the Eyes of Wonder.
Can anyone capture the ineffable pleasures of love better than Stevie Wonder? "Ain't nobody got time to wait", he said.
