It’s been a minute—or eight years to be exact—since the release of Stevie Wonder‘s previous album, A Time to Love. But it appears that he’s ready to make a sizable comeback in 2014, according to The Guardian. The living Detroit native has plans to release two new albums next year, When the World Began and Ten Billion Hearts, with a heavy hip-hop influence.
It’s not quite clear if that means that he’ll be joined by a cast of MCs, though that does seem feasible. He appeared on Drake‘s Take Care and even performed during the rapper/singer’s OVO Fest. Wonder won’t be done there, though, as he’s also working on a more gospel-based project, Lula, dedicated to the memory of his mother. Not only that, but he will hit the road in 2014 to perform Songs In The Key of Life in its entirety.
