Stevie Wonder is working on several recording projects which may be released early next year, reports Billboard.

The soul legend is about to embark on a summer tour in the States, but he told reporters that he's got several projects on the go.

One of those is an album inspired by the death of his mother, entitled 'The Gospel According to Lula'.

"Some of it is going to be traditional gospel but some of it is going to be ... I'm trying to do some stuff," he said. "I might do something in Arabic. I might do something in Hebrew. My whole thing of the title is just saying 'Spreading the good word, the message'."

He also mentioned that he's working on another project called 'Through the Eyes of Wonder', which he described as a performance piece based on his experiences as a blind man.

"What I want to do with our live performances is to create visuals that [give] my take on how I see the world and how most various things affected me," he said.

Wonder's last album was 2005's Grammy-winning 'A Time 2 Love', but he said that if 'Lula' was "..not good enough, I might not put it out. You know how we roll."
