Originally released by Motown Records on October 28, 1972, Talking Book saw Stevie Wonder enjoying more artistic freedom than ever before. As a multiple Grammy Award winner, the album contained 4 Top 10 singles including the # 1 smashes You Are The Sunshine Of My Life and Superstition. Macy Gray was hugely influenced by the record and worked with Metallica producer Hal Wilner to re-imagine the release from start to finish. The result is an album that showcases Macy’s signature vocal sound while paying homage to an artist beloved all over the world.
This is my own personal gift to Stevie Wonder, for all that I learned from him and for his miraculous songs that change my life every time I hear them. This is not a tribute album or concert, it’s a love letter and a big thank you card on record and on stage.
