"Talking Book is one of my top five favourite albums of all time, and Stevie is my favourite," Gray said.

"This is my own personal gift to Stevie Wonder, for all that I learned from him and for his miraculous songs that change my life every time I hear them. This is not a tribute album or concert, it's a love letter and a big thank you card on record and on stage."

The album - which originally won Grammy Awards for 'Best Pop Vocal', 'R&B Performance' and 'R&B Song' - marks her seventh studio album after Covered, which was released earlier this year.

The star recently headlined the Guernsey Performing Arts Festival alongside Kaiser Chiefs.

The Talking Book tracklisting appears below:

1. You Are The Sunshine Of My Life
2. Maybe Your Baby
3. You And I (We Can Conquer The World)
4. Tuesday Heartbreak
5. You've Got It Bad Girl
6. Superstition
7. Big Brother
8. Blame It On The Sun
9. Looking For Another Pure Love
10. I Believe (When I Fall In Love It Will Be Forever)
