"Wherever I Go, I'll Be Looking For You"

It's hard to churn out consistent #1 hits over multiple years and albums, but One Republic always seem to make it happen. They have three immensely successful albums under their belt and their fourth studio album is in the oven. I was planning on posting a Soundcloud link to their lead single off the album, but then they quickly turned around a video for Wherever I Go. The best part about the track is that it's far from formulaic Pop, which would be an easy thing for One Republic to gravitate towards given their past successes. Sure, Ryan Tedder's vocals will be what you remember, but the piano led beat and escalation of emotion on the hook are downright catchy. Catchy, but not in a way that will lend itself to a quick comparison. Let's just say if the rest of One Republic's new album continues to evolve their sound in the way their lead single did, you're going to get tired of reading about them in this neighborhood of the internet this Summer...#WhereverIGo
