On Tuesday, Stevie Wonder premiered two brand new songs — and they’re very much a reflection of life in 2020 and a reaction from the legendary singer/songwriter to what’s transpired throughout this year, from racial unrest and social justice protests to the COVID-19 pandemic and the collective pall of uncertainty and confusion that has blanketed much of our reality.

“Can’t Put It in the Hands of Fate” features Rapsody, Cordae, Chika, and Busta Rhymes, while “Where is Our Love Song” is a collaboration with blues/rock guitarist/songwriter Gary Clark Jr. A news release credits the tracks as “songs that provide instruction and inspiration for today’s global challenges.”

The songs are both released via So What The Fuss Music, Wonder’s new label marketed and distributed by Republic Records/Universal Music Group.

Here’s the first song, which is a stark call to action:

And the second, which asks an important question for these troubled times: “Where are our words with hope, prayer for peace, and our desperately needed song of love?”

Both songs were written and produced by Wonder, and all of the proceeds generated by “Where Is Our Love Song” will be donated to Feeding America, in its efforts to provide aid to those who desperately need it — whether due to the COVID-19 pandemic or otherwise.

Said Stevie Wonder in a statement about the songs, which he chose to premiere on the 36th birthday of his son, Mumtaz Morris:

“In these times, we are hearing the most poignant wake-up calls and cries for this nation and the world to, please, heed our need for love, peace and unity.”
