The lead single, “If I Lose Myself” charted within the top ten in several countries, while the album’s third single, “Counting Stars”, became the band’s most successful single in recent years, obtaining top five placements in Australia, Canada, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, the U.S. and the UK.
This marks their highest charting single in the United Kingdom to date. It has also peaked at number 2 on the US Billboard Hot 100, matching their highest peak of “Apologize” in 2007.
On April 8, 2014, OneRepublic confirmed via Twitter that their new song, “Love Runs Out”, recorded at Studio Faust Records in Prague, would be released.
Tedder said that the band had intended the song to be the first single on Native, but that he could not think of a chorus for the song, so the song’s release was delayed.
The song was added as the second track on the album’s re-release on April 14. It was also an internationally successful track, breaking the top 5 in Austria, Germany, Canada, Switzerland, and the UK; and reaching the top 15 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. It is used as the promotional song for the show How to Get Away With Murder.
In September 2014, OneRepublic released the music video for “I Lived”, the sixth single off their Native album. Tedder noted that he wrote the song for his 4-year-old son.
The related video raises awareness of cystic fibrosis by featuring a 15-year-old named Bryan Warnecke who lives with the condition. A remix was released for the Coca-Cola [RED] campaign to fight AIDS.
In November 2014, the group tweeted photos captioned: “Hotel recording, Poland. Album 4 “. and “Mid afternoon, working on new album, and this is the view ….. LP 4 is fun already”
