OneRepublic Save The Children With New Single “Feel Again”
OneRepublic are yet to announce the release of their currently unnamed fourth studio album, but they will return to the airwaves today (August 22) with their first single from the record, called “Feel Again.”
The excitement the band has for their latest effort is almost palpable. But enthusiasm arises from more than just the anticipation of releasing new music. A large portion of the proceeds made from the sales of “Feel Again” will be donated to Save The Children‘s new Fall campaign titled “Every Beat Matters.”
“It’s a campaign to raise awareness for preventable child illnesses,” says Ryan Tedder, the band’s lead singer and songwriter. “Essentially, what this program does is provide money to prevent kids from dying … anything from a cold to dehydration … sickness that would be stopped in twenty-four hours in the States that get protracted and actually cause fatalities all over the world.”

If previous sales are any indication of how much OneRepublic will be able to contribute to the cause, Save The Children’s “Every Beat Matters” campaign is in good hands.
Tedder’s voice and the band’s impeccable instrumentation won’t be the only thing you hear while listening to “Feel Again.” The band also recorded the heartbeats of children from Malawi and Guatemala for the song.
