Ryan Tedder, the diva whisperer (he co-wrote Leona Lewis’s “Bleeding Love,” Jordin Sparks’ “Battlefield,” Beyonce’s “Halo,”and Kelly Clarkson’s “Already Gone” in the last year alone) has returned to his day job as frontman for Colorado pop-rockers OneRepublic, whose sophomore album, Waking Up, is due in stores November 17.
The record’s first single, “All the Right Moves,” hasn’t exactly set the world on fire. So what do you think of their second attempt? Seems to walk the “Apologize” synthy-fist-pump power-ballad line pretty well (Bonus points if you recognize dimple-chinned German actor Til Schweiger, most recently of Inglorious Basterds)
