OneRepublic Shares New Song “Better Days”
- American pop-rock band OneRepublic recorded a new song “Better Days” while self-quarantining over the last week. The track will appear on their upcoming fifth studio album “Human”, which is set to be released on May 9th.
“We were in the final week of our fifth album deadline when a global pandemic was declared by the WHO. A few of us unknowingly got exposed to somebody with COVID-19 in London and ended up in quarantine in L.A. at my studio for two weeks,” frontman Ryan Tedder said in a statement. “With only two songs left to finish, one of them happened to be ‘Better Days.’ We write about real experiences and events that happen to us — this is what happens when you write a song during a crisis.”
The band and Interscope Records will donate a portion of the song's proceeds to MusiCares’ COVID-19 Relief Fund to help fellow artists whose livelihoods have been affected by the pandemic.
The band is also inviting fans to be a part of the music video for “Better Days” by submitting videos through the Cinebody app. The videos should show either acts of kindness from home or footage of first responders helping provide aid during the pandemic.
