Stevie Wonder is planning to give his new album a global feel by using rare instruments and world musicians.
The soul star has started recording tracks for The Gospel Inspired by Lula and plans to release the album on what would have been his late mother's 77th birthday in January (08). He says, "I might do a song in Arabic. I might do one in Hebrew. I might do one in Zulu. I might do one that sort of has an East Indian feel to it.
"It will be songs of celebration."
