Macy Gray returns with a brand new album dedicated to the legendary Stevie Wonder. Famed for her distinctive raspy voice, the jazzy vocalist will cover Wonder’s classic Talking Book LP for her new album, which will be released in time for the 40th Anniversary of his timeless masterpiece.

Including Wonder’s classic hits “Superstition” and “You Are The Sunshine Of My Life” amongst many others, to accompany the new release Macy will be performing Talking Book in full at KOKO, London on November 28, as well as some of her own hits.

Talking Book is one of my top five favorite albums of all time, and Stevie is my favorite,” Gray explains. “Released October 28, 1972, 2012 marks the album’s 40th birthday. 

“This is my own personal birthday 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.”

Presented by Soundcrash and CME, tickets for the show are available in advance for £30 via Soundcrashmusic and KOKO.
