KC and The Sunshine Band premiered the audio of their new single, “We Belong Together,” on PerezHilton.com Friday.
The song is the latest in an iconic four decade career that has promoted love, unity and happiness through music. Penned by Harry Wayne “KC” Casey, “We Belong Together” captured what the Grammy Award winner was feeling when he first heard the track.
“I remember, I had just met someone, and it was right at that beginning stage when just the sound of their name gives you butterflies,” said KC. “It was around the time my namesake Casey Naymen, who is a DJ and the son of my close friend Larry, brought me this track and ‘We Belong Together’ was born. It came from that feeling of just wanting to be with someone, and knowing you belong with this person.”
