We had an exclusive preview of OneRepublic’s new album and we’re super ‘Happy’ about the surprise collab

One Republic are returning with their fourth studio album and if Ryan Tedder’s writing skills are anything to go by, it’s going to be an instant smash hit. Not to mention they’ve got the coolest collab ever.


We sent MP! TV presenter Luke Franks along to meet Ryan and have a sneak peek of some of the new tracks at a fancy hotel yesterday.

OneRepublic have recently released the lead single ‘Whenever I Go’ and it’s deffo a sign of everything you should expect from their upcoming album. The new songs are big, quality anthems that are sure to take over the charts (and our lives) – one of them even includes an epic gospel choir. After playing some new tracks, Ryan stuck around for a drink and a chat. He revealed that the band has a massive collab with Pharrell on the way and we also found out that a lot of the album was recorded on iPhones. This is the future!
