Ryan Tedder Teases New OneRepublic Single

By Shane Lou

Mosley Music Group/Interscope RecordsOneRepublic‘s Ryan Tedder says the band has a new single in store for fans. The song, “Love Runs Out,” didn’t make the cut for their most recent album, Native, but he calls it “the coolest thing we’ve done.”

If that’s the case, why wasn’t it included on Native? Ryan recently explained to England’s Capital FM, “The very short backstory on the song was when we were working on Native….I wanted it to be the first single, a few of us in the band did, but I could not finish the chorus. And you can’t have a song without a chorus.”

Ryan said it took him about a year to finish “Love Runs Out,” and that he likes it as much as the Native hit “Counting Stars.” He didn’t reveal a release date for the single.
