With OneRepublic’s new album, Native (out today), leader Ryan Tedder wanted to show a more personal side of the band. He wanted each song to sound like it was straight from the heart, but written specifically for the fans. It’s a songwriting outline Tedder says he stole from U2.
Last year, OneRepublic were given the biggest challenge of their careers. Their label, Interscope Records, called Ryan Tedder and the rest of the guys in June and asked if they could have the follow-up to 2009′s Waking Up ready by November.
OneRepublic is a band of five completely different guys, who somehow manage to get along. That’s what artist Willo Perron, who worked on the album art for OneRepublic’s upcoming record Native, said after having one dinner with them.
