Stevie Wonder has released two new songs for the first time in four years after leaving Motown Records and setting up his own record label.

The piano-playing music icon released Where Is Our Love Song and Can’t Put It In The Hands Of Fate on Tuesday, with a label other than Motown Records – after almost six decades under the legendary imprint.

Instead they were released under Wonder’s So What The Fuss Music – distributed through Universal Music Group’s Republic Records.

Wonder made the announcement in a virtual news conference, where he also added it was the first time he had released two new songs on the same day.
