Brian Wilson and Jim James Collaborate on New Song ‘Right Where I Belong’

    Brian Wilson and My Morning Jacket leader Jim James have released a new collaborative single, ‘Right Where I Belong’. It was written for the soundtrack to Long Promised Road, the documentary about Wilson’s life and career that arrived in limited theaters and VOD earlier this month. Take a listen below.

    Brian Wilson: Long Promised Road was directed by Brent Wilson (no relation) and is built around the Beach Boys member’s conversations with longtime Rolling Stone editor Jason Fine. “I was thrilled when Brent and Jason asked me to compose a song for the film,” Brian Wilson told Rolling Stone. “I enjoyed working on the song with Jim; he was the perfect collaborator.”

    James added: “In my heart and soul, Brian Wilson’s music has always held a place of such divine importance. It has always been there with me in celebrating life’s greatest triumphs and has also sustained me through some of my darkest hours. His spirit and life story have taught us all to never give up and to always listen to and honor the spirit of each of our own unique creative souls. So it was truly such an honor to create and collaborate with Brian on brand new music for this incredible upcoming film about his life.”

    The Long Promised Road soundtrack is out November 26 via Lakeshore Records. Last week, Brian Wilson issued At My Piano, a collection of solo piano renditions of his classic songs.
