While a tracklist has not been confirmed yet, a second song has leaked. The song, “Secrets” will be the lead single in Germany, as it is featured in a German movie. “Secrets” is a great song and has great build up. I prefer “All The Right Moves” and think it’s a better song, but “Secrets” is still a great track. “Waking Up” is one album I am anxiously waiting for. As you may have noticed, I am a big fan of Ryan Tedder and his songwriting/producing. (OneRepublic and Ryan Tedder are on one of the tracks on Leona Lewis‘ album Echo. The song is called “Lost then Found“).
What do you think of “Secrets“?
Bonus: “Everything” and “Come Home” with Sara Bareilles :
I found this “demo” and hopefully it will pop up on a OneRepublic album. It is listed as a demo, but it sounds complete and ready for commercial success if you ask me. If it doesn’t end up on a future OneRepublic album, hopefully he is shopping the song around to another artist. It is a brilliant song called “Everything” and is a great track. I prefer it over “Secrets“.
“Come Home” is a great track off “Dreaming Out Loud“, OneRepublic‘s first album. The band recorded a version of the song with Sara Bareilles and it’s more brilliant than the original. While I like the original, the harmonies with Ryan Tedder and Sara Bareilles are amazing and add depth and emotion to the song. I really like it and hope you do as well.
