Click to listen to the Constellations' 'Right Where I Belong'

With "Right Where I Belong," Atlanta's Constellations return with more of their silky rock spiced with soul. The track ambles along a swaying keyboard groove, with sassy finger snaps and singer Elijah Jones' calm crooning – a perfect soundtrack to a bright summer stroll.

After some heavy touring since their 2010 debut album, Southern Gothic, the band felt their sound was primed for a natural revamp. On their next record, Do It for Free, the Constellations look to ease up on the rapping, embracing more blues and melodies to create something more soulful this time around. Free is set for a June 12th release on 429 Records, but you can download "Right Where I Belong" now.

Song Stories


Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
