New Music Video and Single: OneRepublic – “Good Life”

It was exactly a year ago that OneRepublic released their sophomore album, Waking Up. The band premiered the “International Version” music video for the album’s next single, “Good Life”.

The song is one of my favorites on the album and I’m glad it is getting a proper release and video. The single edit of the song is a bit shorter than the album version, and is also different, especially the last minute of the song. I love the whistling! It’s such a great song!

A few days ago, a version of the video was leaked, and OneRepublic issued a statement saying the leaked video was not the official video and was “an unfinished product”…. but this new “International Version” looks very similar…. maybe there’s another US version of the video in the works?

Either way, the song is super upbeat and catchy. The lyrics are positive and it’s a feel good song. The video is really simplistic, and the guys are out in the country-side having a good time… it works and get’s the job done.

What do you all think of “Good Life” and the video?

New Single: OneRepublic – “Good Life” (Live Performance)

OneRepublic‘s “Good Life” is one of my favorite tracks on Waking Up, and is the band’s next single. The album will celebrate its one year anniversary tomorrow! “Good Life” is such a great, positive, upbeat song. One of Ryan Tedder‘s best.

OneRepublic are still working on the music video, and the video that leaked is a rough cut.

Here’s what the band said about the leak:

“ATTENTION 1R FANS: THE VIDEO THAT LEAKED ONTO THE INTERNET IS NOT THE OFFICIAL GOOD LIFE VIDEO – THE OFFICIAL VIDEO IS COMING SOON AND IS VERY DIFFERENT FROM WHAT’S BEEN POSTED, IT’S A SHAME U GUYS ARE SEEING AN UNFINISHED PRODUCT.” – via Twitter and their website

While we wait for the music video, here’s OneRepublic performing “Good Life” at the Walmart Soundcheck, and a great introduction by Ryan Tedder:

Seriously, Ryan Tedder is a musical genius!

New Music Video: OneRepublic – “Marchin On”

OneRepublic and Ryan Tedder are very underrated in my opinion. Ryan Tedder has been involved in some of the greatest pop songs in the last few years, and his band OneRepublic has released two solid (I say brilliant) albums. Their latest album, Waking Up (my review), has amazing tracks, including the newest single, the inspiring “Marchin On”. The single is set to be released this Tuesday, the 29th of June.

The single edit of the song is actually a remix and not the same as the album version. The new version has a different beat and is more of a dance track. I think I prefer the album version as that version is driven by the beat of what sounds like a marching army, which gets lost in the single edit. But I also enjoy the energy of the single edit; it is a positive song and the upbeat tempo serves it well. I quite like the song, either version works for me. The music video is very simple, upbeat, fun and colorful, which works with the song and its theme.
