Watch: Earth Wind & Fire Talk The Art Of Songwriting

Earth, Wind & Fire are living legends—just ask your moms, pops, older sibling or auntie. The soul/funk/jazz/rock band that has changed black radio time and time again is making its big return this year, embarking on Now, Then & Forever, the group’s first album since 2005’s Illumination. Before the new album drops next Tuesday (Sept. 10), Earth, Wind & Fire sat down with VEVO to talk about the writing and musical influence of founder Maurice White.
