The legendary record holder held a virtual press conference on Tuesday to announce his new music, marketed and distributed by Republic Records, which is part of the Universal Music Group. The move marks a break from Wonder’s nearly 60-year career with Motown.
“Even though I left Motown, I never leave Motown,” Wonder said. “This is Detroit. So I’m sure we can figure out how we can do some things in Motown.”
Wonder was only 11 when Motown first signed him to a contract in 1961.
“Where Is Our Love Song” stars Gary Clark Jr., and “Can’t Put It In The Hands of Fate” stars Rapsody, Cordae, Chika and Busta Rhymes.

“In these times, we hear the most moving calls for awakening and cries for this nation and the world to please pay attention to our need for love, peace and unity,” Wonder said of the donation in a statement.
In his remarks Tuesday, Wonder also encouraged his listeners to vote in next month’s presidential election.
“We can’t put the vote in the hands of fate. The universe is watching us. And for me, we have to vote for justice and injustice. This is exactly the time. he.
