After a long hiatus, Stevie Wonder is preparing two new albums for 2014.
The upcoming effort, 'Ten Billion Hearts', will be his first offering in eight (8) years and will feature newly written records surrounding topics like his recent divorce from Karen Millard-Morris and "my children, family, change, growth, heartbreaks". The project will also draw inspiration from Hip Hop.
The 63-year-old told Sky News, “I listen a lot to rap, and I'm inspired to take it, to use it in another way, to get the message across.”
The other project is ‘When The World Began’, a collaboration with producer David Foster, which will reportedly feature reworked versions of several of his biggest hits.
Later this year, Wonder is planning a celebration around his classic 1976 album, ‘Songs In The Key Of Life.’ He will perform the entire LP on December 21 at his annual Los Angeles charity concert.
