OneRepublic can do no wrong at the moment. The bands first album, Dreaming Out Loud, has sold 1.8 million albums in the world, and four great singles, “Apologize“, “Stop and Stare“, “Say (All I Need)” and “Come Home“. Dreaming Out Loud is an album you can listen to from beginning to end without having to skip a song. It is great all the way through.
Ryan Tedder, the lead singer, is an excellent songwriter and record producer. He co-wrote Leona Lewis’ smash hit “Bleeding Love“. He has worked with Backstreet Boys, Hillary Duff, Lupe Fiasco, Chris Cornell, Shayne Ward, Jennifer Hudson, Rihanna, Daughtry, Westlife, Natasha Bedingfield. He has written some big songs, including “Halo” for Beyonce (although it was intended for Leona Lewis), “Already Gone” for Kelly Clarkson, and “Battlefield” for Jordin Sparks.
OneRepublic is getting ready to release their follow up album, Waking Up, which is scheduled for release on the 17th of November. The lead single is called “All The Right Moves” and is scheduled to impact radio stations on the 29th of September.
This song is massive. It has OneRepublic all over it and is an instant classic. The production is very slick and the song is very catchy and radio friendly. I can and have been listening the the song nonstop. When you mix Ryan Tedder’s writing, production and vocals, you can always expect good things. The leas single is really good, and I can’t wait for Waking Up to be released.
