Lead singer Ryan Tedder discussed the evolution of OneRepublic’s new single, “Better Days” on his Instagram Live this week. Tedder explained the chorus for the song was already written months ago, then the pandemic hit the United States and the band immediately knew what to write about in the verses.
“Oh I know that they’ll be better days, oh that sunshine bout to come my way” are some of the uplifting lyrics in the chorus of “Better Days”. The song is simple and smart. All people really want during this strange confusing time is a sliver of hope – OneRepublic delivers that with this new track. It’s a feel-good anthem we can all sing once this madness is over.
