Stevie Wonder leaves Motown after almost six decades

 Stevie Wonder has departed Motown Records after almost six decades to launch his own Republic Records imprint, So What The Fuss Music.


The “Superstition” hitmaker was just 11 when he was signed to the iconic label and now he's launched his own imprint So What The Fuss Music on Universal Music Group's Republic Records.

To kick-start his new record label, Wonder released the new tracks “Where Is Our Love Song” and “Can't Put It In The Hands Of Fate” on Tuesday, and he's set to release a new EP and solo album, “Through the Eyes of Wonder“.

On departing Motown - which he signed to in 1961 - Wonder said at a press conference this week: “Even though I have left Motown, I never leave Motown. That’s Detroit. So I’m sure that we can figure out how we can do some things at Motown. Maybe I’ll do my ‘Gospel Inspired by Lula’ with Motown. We’ll work it out."

The music legend also revealed that he penned 'Where Is Our Love Song' when he was 18, but he felt with the current state of the world, now was the time to share it.
