“It’s a conscious departure,” frontman Ryan Tedder told EW of the track. “As an artist or musician, if you’re not poking or needling or pushing the envelope to see if it pops, you’re not doing it right. Whatever our sound is — and I don’t think we have a dyed-in-the-wool sound — this album is by far our most evolved.”

OneRepublic are back with a brand new song titled “Wherever I Go” and we’re already obsessed!
The track serves as the official lead single off their upcoming fourth studio album, which is set to be released later this year!
“This song is the hardest damn thing I’ve ever written and as such I have to learn [to sing it] properly! That’s kind of my brief description,” frontman Ryan Tedder told Wonderland mag. “Without going into details about what it is, it’s very much about obsession, and almost an unnatural, unhealthy level of obsession, is what the song is about. But it feels very, to me – like we were looking for – whenever you write a first single or an album, specifically singles, you’re always looking for a bit of a unicorn. And on this album, we were looking for a unicorn mating with another unicorn, in a magical forest. We were trying to find something – two unicorns mating in the woods.”

“I think earlier on in my relationship, there were times where I would get jealous,” Nick said. “I think with time and trust built up, a lot of that went away. We have a really strong relationship now. It takes a second until you feel really locked in with someone.”
“The secret is out, we did an original song, “Ordinary Human”, for the movie The Giver (Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges) coming out this August!” the band tweeted about the track.
The Giver centers on “a seemingly perfect community, without war, pain, suffering, differences or choice, a young boy is chosen to learn from an elderly man about the true pain and pleasure of the real world.”
