Hey gang,

Renowned Motown artist Stevie Wonder makes his long-awaited debut in Rock Band on November 15th! Wonder, whose musical career has spanned a remarkable 49 years, is the recipient of multiple industry awards and honors, including 22 Grammy Awards. “Stevie Wonder Pack 01” brings some of this legend’s biggest hits to the Rock Band Music Store next week!

The pack is kicked off with “Superstition,” a now legendary track written by a then 22-year-old Wonder, off of the 1972 album, Talking Book. The funky, Moog synth bass of “Higher Ground” and the grooves of “Living for the City,” both off of 1973’s Innervisions, also make the cut. “Sir Duke,” a Billboard hit written as a tribute to jazz great Duke Ellington, and “I Wish” – both from the double platinum and critically acclaimed album, Songs in the Key of Life – round out the pack.

All tracks feature support for keyboards, as well as harmonies and pro-drums when played with Rock Band 3. Additionally, “Sir Duke” and “I Wish” are both eligible for a Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrade.

Available on Xbox 360, Wii™ and PlayStation®3 system (November 15th, 2011):

• Stevie Wonder – “Superstition”
• Stevie Wonder – “Higher Ground”
• Stevie Wonder – “Living For the City”
• Stevie Wonder – “Sir Duke” X
• Stevie Wonder – “I Wish” X

(These tracks will be available in Europe on PlayStation®3 system November 16th)

The tracks will be available as “Stevie Wonder Pack 01” or for purchase individually on Xbox 360, PlayStation®3 system and Wii™. Tracks marked with “X” will include Pro Guitar and Pro Bass expansions for $0.99 per song.

Price:

$8.49 USD, £4.39 UK, €6.59 EU (680 Microsoft Points, 850 Wii Points™) for “Stevie Wonder Pack 01”
$1.99 USD, £.99 UK, €1.49 EU (160 Microsoft Points) per song
$2.00 USD (200 Wii Points™) per song
$0.99 USD (100 Wii Points™/80 Microsoft Points), £0.59 UK, €0.79 EU per song for eligible Pro Guitar/Pro Bass upgrade

Well, now that it's finally here:

IMMA PICK IT ALL UP!!!



Stevie Wonder, welcome to RB: You're gonna be just fine.

Everything about this pack is just full of win!

Also, Higher Ground in this pack (maybe the RHCP cover later pl0x?)

Plus, I Wish:

Remember that Will Smith song that sampled it?

Oh yeah, here it is:

Could have been a larger pack, but looking forward to it. Especially Pro Bass upgrades.

Surprised "Isn't She Lovely" and "I Just Called to Say I Love You" were not included. I still want the whole pack, though. Would like "Uptight", too!

I'm really glad that isn't in the pack

Goes to show that Harmonix still has some sense of taste

Pack should be bigger but I can't really complain about any amount of Stevie Wonder. Bass, drums, keys and vocals will all be amazing.

I love that we are finally getting Stevie Wonder. I had a lot of "Oh, THAT song" moments in this pack. I still wish we would have gotten Isn't She Lovely. I wish we would have gotten a 9 or 12 pack, but hey I shouldn't be complaining. We are getting the all might and awesome Stevie Wonder!

I really thought this was going to be a bigger pack...

I wonder what the rumored 9-song pack is going to be now...or did I miss something?

Oh well...looking forward to some funk drums. It ought to be a nice change of pace.

Higher Ground! Another GH1 song even though it's not the RHCP version.

Also, might be buying the lot! Bass looks like it could be fun this week.

9 pack could be Elton John in December to rival the Billy Joel pack last year. Only time will tell. Good choices for the Wonder pack.

I agree, I think the songs they chose are some of Stevie's best, although I would like Isn't she lovely too, these are great. "I just called..." is the worst song he put out in my opinion.
