OneRepublic Premieres New Song “Run”
- American pop-rock band OneRepublic premiered a new song “Run” along with a music video on May 5, 2021.
The song will appear on their upcoming fifth studio album “Human”.
The track was written and produced by Tyler Spry, John Nathaniel, Brent Kutzle and Ryan Tedder.
The video was directed by Tomás Whitmore, who pays homage to Hollywood movies the likes of “Top Gun”, “Tootsie”, “Wall Street”, “West Side Story”, “Singin' in the Rain” and more.
Frontman Ryan Tedder said of the song, “This song is about all the negative press. Everything that is on the news sucks ass 99 percent of the time: 'The world is gonna end, the economy is gonna crash, the sky is falling, everything is so bad…' and my reaction to that is – horse-blinders. Run. Go straight through it, cut through all the noise and B.S. Go do what you want, where you want, when you, how you want. Don't listen to anybody else. Have fun while you're doing it because if you're chasing stuff that is not fun, it is not sustainable. Do what makes you happy, tell everybody else to shut up. Turn the news off, get off socials, whatever is making you upset or depressed. All that nonsense is just going to slow you down. Life is short, live it while you're alive. We're not promised another day. Run.”
- The new album “Human” comprises of 16-track an is set to be released in December 1, 2021.
Ryan Tedder said, “The whole album is steering towards connection. It's about wanting real human connection in a meaningful way, because that's really all that matters at the end of the day. All the song titles and all the songs are about very, very, basic human emotion. And so we're actually calling it, the album, “Human.” That's new information. And it will have about 8 or 9 songs on it.”
