The singer has returned to the studio after a 10 years pause, to record �A Time to Love�
It's been 10 years that Stevie Wonder doesn't produce an album. Now the time has come for him to share "A Time to Love," his new album due in stores on October 18th. Speaking about the long time he needs to complete the album the singer says "I wanted it to sound contemporary but still be me. It was just a matter of getting it right."
What is so special about the album is that it contains 15 original tracks of all genres, from hip-hop, gospel to world music, with some arrangements using strings. What's more it also features some guest vocalists, like gospel artist Kim Burrell, on the anthemic "If Your Love Cannot Be Moved" with choir vocals produced by Kirk Franklin and India Arie, on the title track.
Some other guests include Hubert Laws, guitarist Doc Powell, Sir Paul McCartney, drummer Narada Michael Walden and Brazilian guitarist Oscar Castro Neves. As apparent from its title all songs included in the album revolve around the theme of love, about which Wonder says "Among all the wonderful things we have, we don't seem to have a time to love. And to me that's the fuel, that's the fuel we need to make the engine go."
