Eivets Rednow is an easy listening instrumental album by Stevie Wonder released on the Gordy Records label in 1968.[1] The album was created as a follow-up to the successful easy listening instrumental single "Alfie".[2] "A House Is Not a Home", another song by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, also appears on the album. Eivets Rednow is Stevie Wonder spelled backwards; Wonder's name doesn't appear on the cover of the original releases.[3] This was Wonder's ninth studio album, released on November 20, 1968.

Wonder plays harmonica, drums, and clavinet on this album, though doesn't sing on any of the tracks. On some reissues, "How do you spell Stevie Wonder backwards" is printed on the top corner of the album sleeve in small print.

This is also the first album that has song credits solely by Wonder himself.
