New Stevie Wonder!

Right place, right time!?

Stevie Wonder treated the 3,600-something guests at Robin Hood's annual benefit Monday night to an hour-long performance, including obligatory hits "Superstition," "Did I Hear You Say You Love Me," "My Cherie Amor," and one new, never-before-heard track!

"We're going to try something new," Wonder told the crowd, deviating from his set list.

"Tell your man you love him, everyday," he then advised, before belting out an upbeat, saxophone-filled track that could easily be called "He Loves You So."

In the audience were hundreds of A-listers - including Uma Thurman, Brian Williams, Martha Stewart, Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas - who helped raise an astonishing $87.8 million for poverty-stricken New Yorkers that night.

A major congratulations is owed to all, and be sure to check out the new Stevie song - while it lasts - above!

As Tall As Lions Haunt Irving Plaza

"This is the first time we've ever headlined Irving Plaza," As Tall As Lions guitarist Saen Fitzgerald told the packed crowd in New York Thursday night.

"This is a crazy experience for us."

The Long Island natives rocked the NYC landmark venue for more than two hours - pairing haunting, progressive tracks like "The Narrows," "Be Here Now" and "We's Been Waitin'" with an equally impressive, synched-up light show.

Check out a snippet of our favorite ATAL jam, "Circles," below.
