NEW YORK — Stevie Wonder introduced two brand new tunes Tuesday representing the present times he hopes moves to change.
The 70-year-old made the statement through a digital press conference Tuesday and gave an update on his wellbeing, stating he”was blessed with a brand new kidney” past December.
“Since I’ve been discharged from the hospital, the physicians have made sure I have taken my medication in time and I am planning to do it for so long as I need to, even if it’s the remainder of my life. I feel good. My voice feels fantastic,” he explained.
“And for each the folks who have been listening to such rumors, listen, if I am feeling some type of way, I will allow you to know,” he continued. “We do not wish to own misinformation.
Tuesday’s announcement — that Wonder stated was the very first time he published two songs at precisely the same moment — coincided with the 36th birthday of the second oldest son, Mumtaz Morris.
Wonder said he began writing”Where’s Our Love Song” if he was 18. “Then came this season,” he explained, “with all of the confusion and all of the hatred and all of the east versus west, left versus right. It is only a challenging break.”
All profits from”Where’s Our Love Song” — that comprises Grammy-winning guitarist Gary Clark Jr. — may reap Feeding America.
Rappers Busta Rhymes, Rapsody, Cordae, and Chika seem on”Can’t Place It in the Hands of Fate” and Wonder stated he plans on such as the tunes on a brand new EP.
He clarified that”Can not Place It in the Hands of Fate” was a tune initially about a connection, but he also updated the lyrics after”considering where we (are) from the world and considering the way this is the most critical moment.”
“Change is appropriate today. We can not place it in the hands of destiny. Ain’t nobody got the time to wait,” he explained. “We can not place it that the hands of destiny finding a cure for this horrible virus.
“I don’t care what color you are because I do not see your color. You see color, do not act as if you do not see color, you’re doing. However, I don’t see your visual color. However, I do believe that your spirit. I do feel that your soul. I see the color of your soul and soul, and I am seeing a lot of spirits and spirits which aren’t about the love which we are supposed to feel and have for one another.”
