Higher Ground

Music by Stevie Wonder

Originally Performed by Stevie Wonder

"Higher Ground" reached number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 1 on the US Hot R&B Singles chart. Wonder wrote and recorded the song in a three-hour burst of creativity in May 1973. The album version of the song contains an extra verse and runs 30 seconds longer than the single version. The unique wah-clavinet sound in the song was achieved with a Mu-Tron III envelope filter pedal. The bass line is provided by a Moog synthesizer and using overdubs, Wonder played all instruments on the track, including drums and percussion. The song was also released in the UK but achieved only modest success, reaching number 29 in the UK Singles Chart.

    Release Date: 1973
