London: Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney have reunited for a new duet, 30 years after they first worked together on their hit track ‘Ebony and Ivory’.

They both feature on a track entitled ‘Only Our Hearts’, which is from McCartney’s new album ‘Kisses on the Bottom’.

The former Beatles member gushed about his joy at working with the ‘Superstition’ singer, branding him ‘a genius’.

“Stevie came along to the studio in LA and he listened to the track for about ten minutes and he totally got it,” the Daily Mail quoted McCartney as saying.

“He just went to the mic and within 20 minutes had nailed this dynamite solo.

“When you listen you just think, ‘How do you come up with that?’ But it’s just because he is a genius, that’s why,” he added.

After the pair worked together on the 1982 song, it reached the number one spot in both the UK and the US.
