In 1976, Stevie Wonder released Songs in the Key of Life, a sprawling, excellent double album of soul and funk-infused pop music that ultimately became his most landmark release. Featuring songs like “Isn’t She Lovely”, “Sir Duke”, and “Another Star”, it’s widely considered one of the best albums of the ’70s and has even been preserved in National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress. Last December, Wonder performed the album in full during a star-studded set at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theater. Now, he plans to take Songs in the Key of Life out on the road for a full tour.
Kicking off on November 6th in New York City, the 11-city jaunt will feature live adaptations of the album’s various tracks. Other dates include a stop in Detroit, Wonder’s hometown, before it wraps up in December in Seattle
