At the age of 70, the global superstar has released TWO new songs

Global superstar Stevie Wonder released two new songs on Tuesday evening. This is the first music that the 70-year-old R&B legend has released in 15 years and 4 years after he departed from his long-time association with Motown Records.

The two songs 'Where Is Our Love Song' and 'Can't Put It In the Hands of Fate' have been released through his newly formed label So What The Fuss Music and distributed by Universal Music Group's Republic Record.

The new songs feature a selection of star contributors, including the Jazz FM Awards nominee Gary Clark Jr on guitar on 'Where Is Our Love Song', with rappers Cordae, Rapsody, Busta Rhymes and Chika featuring on 'Can't Put It In The Hands of Fate'.

This is the first time Stevie Wonder has released music away from Motown or Tamla, dropping hints that a new album is on its way.

Talking about the songs in a livestream press conference, the superstar revealed that the songs are a response to "systematic racism...We can't be a united people of the world and have this craziness".

Stevie's comments follow in the wake of an open message he recorded earlier this year, where the revealed his thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement.

Alongside revealing details about his new music, Stevie also gave an update on his health following a kidney transplant which he had in December 2019. He revealed that "Since I have been released from the hospital, the nurses have made sure Iíve taken my medicine on time and Iím going to do it for as long as I have to..I feel great. My voice feels great...I feel like Iím about 40 right now and I just want to thank everyone for the prayers and the love.Ē
