Farai Chideya talks with Stevie Wonder about his first album in 10 years, A Time to Love.

The CD features duets with gospel singer Kim Burrell, soul diva India.Arie, Wonder's own daughter Aisha Morris and a galaxy of stars backing him up in the studio.

Many critics are calling Wonder's latest effort a return to form for the soul music icon, who's won 21 Grammys in his long career.

As the title suggests, many of Wonder's new songs are about love — perhaps a reflection on his four-year-old marriage to fashion designer Kai Milla.
