From ‘Isn’t She Lovely’ and ‘For Once in My Life’ to ‘Superstition’ and ‘You Are the Sunshine in My Life,’ Stevie Wonder has churned out loads of hits. Fans of the lauded singer will be glad to know that he’s releasing two new albums in the coming year, which will not only reprise some of his famous tracks but also showcase new material.

Entitled ‘When the World Began’ and ‘Ten Billion Hearts,’ these are the first albums we’ll hear from Wonder since 2005′s ‘A Time to Love.’ Both projects are set to arrive in 2014.

After filing for divorce last year, Wonder tells Billboard that the new music was inspired by listening to rap music and “my children, family, change, growth, heartbreaks.”

‘When the World Began’ is a collaboration with famed producer David Foster. The two remixed Wonder’s greatest hits for the project, which also includes a symphony. Aside from this work, the 63-year-old plans to work on a gospel album. He promised his mother he would record the effort — she passed away in 2006. The LP also features a big commemorative performance of 1976′s ‘Songs in the Key of Life.’

Wonder will perform the entire album with artists from the original recordings as well as some newer voices on Dec. 21, during his yearly charity show in Los Angeles.
