Girl Blue
by Stevie Wonder
(3 plays) | (0 fans)

Stevie Wonder in 1972: "Aged 21, relocated to New York and with a renegotiated Motown contract in hand, on 'Music of My Mind,' Wonder was off the leash. He wrote every song, played virtually every instrument, experimented wildly – not least with electronics – and for the first time, made an album, rather than a collection of tracks: one of the all-time great hot streaks in pop history begins here.” Released in 1972, 'Music of My Mind' - his FOURTEENTH studio album! - marked Wonder’s transition from a 1960s child star into a mature songwriter who would craft a series of albums that would define the 1970s.

In 1972, KEXP brought you music over FM radio, today we provide many ways to experience music - including our song-of-the-day podcast. Today's song-of-the-day samples Billy Paul's 1972s music in New music from Earl Sweatshirt! His 10-song LP Sick! will drop in a couple weeks. “Sick is my humble offering of 10 songs recorded in the wake of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic and its subsequent lockdowns,” Earl Sweatshirt said in a statement. “Before the virus, I had been working on an album I named after a book I used to read with my mother (The People Could Fly). Once the lockdowns hit, people couldn’t fly anymore. A wise man said art imitates life. People were sick. The People were angry and isolated and restless. I leaned into the chaos cause it was apparent that it wasn’t going anywhere. These songs are what happened when I would come up for air.” Download the song-of-the-day podcast: https://www.kexp.org/podcasts/song-of-the-day/2022/1/5/earl-sweatshirt-tabula-rasa-feat-armand-hammer/
