Good news for Stevie Wonder fans! He is on his way to create a new album, which expected to be available this year.
In a report by Rolling Stone, Wonder’s new album expected to be called “Through the Eyes of Wonder” will be released in September.
The new record would be his first record since 2005 and the soul singer claimed to have an “equality” theme in the LP and give positivity to his listeners.
“Since the last album I did was about 10 years ago, a lot has happened,” Wonder said.
“I’m hoping to show what I’ve seen and I’m hoping it will encourage people to move to the next level that will give us a place of positivity.” The theme was mainly focused following the events of police shootings in Ferguson, Missouri and other cities in the United States.
“How long have we been talking about the planet and what we’ve got to do,” the singer continued in the interview conducted by the Associated Press.
“The fact that we’ve had the tragedy (in Newton, Connecticut), that’s a wake-up call.” “We’ve got to have fewer people be silent and do something by their actions, by how they vote.
I just think that we’re in a time when we have to put some action behind that mouthpiece that we have.
Meanwhile, the 65-year-old musician expressed his thoughts on the new technology of music sharing, pertaining to Spotify, as Stevie Wonder is focusing on his new album.
“The days of the cheapening of music, and music just being a sort of background source, is unacceptable,” the singer said.
“My desire (is to see) the emphasis being put on the quality of the sound of the music and the music experience.
Different artists are talking about the laws that exist and how they need to be fixed so that compensation does happen to a far fairer level.
And I agree with that.”
