Wonder, who filed for divorce last year, said the new music was inspired by "family, change, growth, heartbreaks."

He is also hoping to fulfill a promise to his mother Lula, who died in 2006, by recording a gospel album in her memory.

First, though, Wonder will celebrate one of his most acclaimed albums. He'll perform "Songs in the Key of Life" in its entirety for the first time Dec. 21. The Los Angeles concert will benefit his House Full of Toys charity.
