the great Stevie Wonder will be dropping yet another album to add to his
already stellar catalog, entitled A Time To Love.

said in a statement. "Each project takes on its own life, and the songs
from A Time To Love are the most appropriate for the statement I wanted
The new album, which is being released on Motown Records, will
include collaborations with India.Arie, gospel star Kim Burrell,
Wonder's daughter Aisha Morris, Prince, and Paul McCartney among others.
With this new album, Wonder embraced the collaborative process with
open arms and laid down no scheduling deadlines for the album's release,
which helped him shape one his better albums to date, according to
"Stevie always has impeccable timing," Sylvia Rhone, President of
Motown, Executive Vice President of Universal Motown, said in a
statement. "The world is hungering more than ever right now for the kind
of message only he can deliver. I speak for the entire Universal Music
Group when I say nobody can illuminate our greatest hopes, soothe our
deepest fears, and put us on the musical high road like Stevie Wonder."
Wonder has already released the album's first single and video, "So
What The Fuss," which contained a second, descriptive audio track on the
video recorded by Busta Rhymes, made accessible for people who are blind
or have low vision. The innovative video description process was the
first time a music artist enabled visually impaired music fans to
experience key elements of a music video.
Winner of 21 Grammys and the prestigious Grammy Lifetime Achievement
Award, the musical genius has sold more than 70 million records
worldwide and has won countless honors and awards throughout his career.
