Following his departure from Motown, the tracks, his first new music in four years, are released on Wonder’s new label, So What The Fuss Music, and both songs are written and produced by Wonder and are available now on all digital and streaming platforms.

"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," Wonder says.

Wonder unveiled the new songs during a virtual press conference on Tuesday and he also gave an update on his health, saying he "was blessed with a new kidney" last December.

"Since I have been released from the hospital, the nurses have made sure I've taken my medicine on time and I’m going to do it for as long as I have to, even if it is the rest of my life. I feel great. My voice feels great," he said.

"I feel like I’m about 40 right now and I just thank everyone for the prayers and the love."
