After dropping a teaser last week, OneRepublic’s latest single has leaked online!
“Love Runs Out” comes as the follow-up to the band’s mega-hit “Counting Stars,” and boasts an up-tempo, rock-driven sound that could put it in line to be the next summer anthem!
And if fans don’t remember the track from OneRepublic’s 2013 album Native, it’s because it didn’t appear on the record! During an interview with a UK radio station, frontman Ryan Tedder revealed that “Love Runs Out” was actually supposed to be the lead single from Native though a problem arose during the writing process that forced the band to shelf the song.
“The very short back story on the song was when we were working on Native I originally thought this was going to be the first single and it’s called ‘Love Runs Out’ and I wanted it to be the first single, a few of us in the band did, but I could not finish the chorus,” Tedder told Capitol FM (via Digital Spy). “And you can’t have a song without a chorus.”
Thankfully, Tedder’s writing block was remedied and the song is now available for purchase on iTunes, where it’s already doing quite well:
