As I predicted months ago, “Counting Stars”, the opening track on OneRepublic’s latest album, Native, is an instant radio-friendly single. It’s got everything you’d expect from a Ryan Tedder produced track – including a great build-up and an anthemic chorus. It’s pop-rock perfection that Tedder defined.
It’s super catchy and has an brilliant hook… it will be your new favorite song… you’ve been warned.
And if you haven’t picked up Native, you’re missing out! It’s a great Rock/Pop album. There’s definitely at least another single in the album, “Burning Bridges” and possibly another single with “What You Wanted” or “Something I Need”.
OneRepublic are heading out on tour with Sara Bareilles, and it’s going to be an incredible show. I saw OneRepublic at KIIS-FM’s Jingle Ball in December and Sara on her Brave Enough Tour, and both were fantastic. It’s going to be a great night of good music.
