OneRepublic to Release its Third Album

It's funny every time I hear a song a begin to like it; I later noticed that most of the songs are sung by OneRepublic. And of course, the number one song that would come to your mind when you hear OneRepublic is the "Apologize". Aside from its thought-provoking tune, it became popular because of its weird music video and of course Jabbawockeez had its hip hop dance while wearing their white gloves and mask.

OneRepublic members are Tedder on vocals who happens to be a songwriter and record producer,  Filkins on guitars and backing vocals, Eddie Fisher on drums, Brent Kutzle on bass and cello, and Drew Brown on lead guitar. The band was formed at Colorado. Their great influences to their music are U2, The Fray and Adam Levine of Maroon 5.

While watching Gossip Girl 1 before, the intro of the song caught my attention and I heard the lyrics, Do you know where your heart is? Do you think you can find it..." The song talks for me to express what I was feeling during that time. Those times, I feel exhausted that the chorus of the song hit me: All I need, is the air I breathe, and a place to rest my head. And according to Tedder, the song is about being happy with what you have in life, not obsessing over with what you do not have. Person, relationship, love, success, fame - the song fits for all and as for me, I was referring for my success.

All I need - OneRepublic


Another track of OneRepublic I encounter while watching and this time it's from "Sorcerer's Apprentice" is the "Secrets". The violin is pleasant to my ear that made me to like the song. Is it too shallow? Anyways, I interpret the song like people get tired of pretending or perhaps hiding something with their life, that need another current or to try something new. Well as for the band, they are referring to their struggles when writing song lyrics. They do not want something flowery thought. They want truthful thoughts - and everyday I see the news, all the problems that we could solve and when a situation rises just write it into an album, send it straight to gold, I don't really like my flow. So that's how it goes.

Those are just some of the songs from them that I really like and a good news is that they will release their third album entitled "Feel Again". The single will release on August 27, 2012. So, what this band would FEEL us AGAIN?
