It’s been two years since we’ve heard a new album from our favorite pop/alt band, OneRepublic. Lead singer, Ryan Tedder recently told Zane Lowe at Beats 1 it was definitely time for them to release some new music. “If we had to compile an album this week we could do it, but I’m kind of insatiable, so I’ll be writing up until probably September” he says.
The first single, “Connection” is another pop-infused alt anthem focusing on how hard it is to find genuine people in a world filled with false hope. Featuring a chanty chorus (“can I get a connection?”) and Tedder’s evergreen voice. Once again, he can do no wrong and I’m convinced this band will last forever.
As for more details on the album, the Oklahoma native says he’s trying to grab Mark Foster, Paul McCartney (yes, you read that right), THEY., and many others for possible collaborations and hoping we’ll see the album by the fall.
