It’s no secret, I’m a massive fan of Ryan Tedder and OneRepublic, and I’m more than ready for the new album, Native. Native is set to be released on the 26th of March.
Here’s the just-released music video for the lead single, “If I Lose Myself”:
The song is really really growing on me. As with almost anything Ryan Tedder writes of produces, I liked it from the first listen. I wasn’t as keen on the dance elements and electronics on the track, but it’s growing on me. I’d be interested in hearing a version of the song without it, but it works.
As expected on a Ryan Tedder track, it’s got an insane hook and chorus, with a bridge that is epic and creates that “magic” moment that is a trademark of Ryan’s musical production. I love the bit where the music drops off and the songs turns into an anthemic sing-along. It really raises my expectations for Native…. they’re really really high now. But I’m sure Ryan and the guys of OneRepublic will rise to my expectations.
