Biography
OneRepublic is an American, self-proclaimed "genreless", band formed in Colorado Springs in 2002 by Ryan Tedder and Zach Filkins. After a few years of moderate success, they have since drawn mainstream attention with the release of their single "Apologize," which has sold in excess of 7 million singles worldwide. The song, according to SoundScan Data, is one of only two songs that have reached 3 million legal downloads in history. A remix of "Apologize" was featured on Timbaland's Shock Value and the band's debut album, Dreaming Out Loud, produced by Greg Wells. Their debut album was released in the United States on November 20, 2007, with international release dates staggered throughout early 2008. As of June 14, 2008, Dreaming Out Loud had sold 761,298 copies in the U.S. with the bands total album sales coming to over 1.5 million worldwide so far. The band's second single, "Stop and Stare," has also crossed the 2 million mark in terms of worldwide single sales. Their third single, "Say (All I Need)", has been released in the UK and in the U.S.

OneRepublic's song "Apologize", written by Ryan Tedder, was released in its original version on the band's debut album Dreaming Out Loud. The song was also prominently featured as a remix on Timbaland's 2007 release of Shock Value. The single, as featured on Shock Value, has gone 3x Platinum (marking three million copies sold in the U.S) and 5 million copies worldwide. It peaked at number three on the U.K. Official Top 40 Week on November 11, 2007. The week of November 10, 2007, "Apologize" was the biggest radio airplay hit in the history of Top 40 radio in North America, racking up an astounding 10,331 spins in one week. The song held the #1 position for five months before the record was broken by "Bleeding Love", a song co-written and produced by Tedder.

The band performed "Apologize" live on Fox's So You Think You Can Dance on August 2, 2007, and with Timbaland on an episode of One Life to Live in October 2007. It was also played at the end of four television shows— Cold Case episode "Sabotage," Smallville's "Hero," Hollyoaks and Gossip Girl episode "Hi, Society." The follow-up single to "Apologize" is "Stop and Stare". They performed "Stop and Stare" and "Mercy" live on the Smallville episode, "Hero," which aired March 13, 2008. They also performed "Stop and Stare" on the Australian version of So You Think You Can Dance on April 7, 2008. On May 21, 2008, the band appeared on the American Idol (season 7) finale performing a duet of "Apologize" with finalist David Archuleta. They returned to Fox's So You Think You Can Dance on July 3, 2008 with a live performance of their third single "Say (All I Need)"

Their fourth single and follow up to "Say (All I Need)" is "Mercy" and was released in the autumn of 2008.

They released a second album, Waking Up, in 2010. From this album, they released four singles: All the Right Reasons, Secrets, Marchin' On and Good Life. Their album peaked at No. 21 on Billboard and has sold 300,000 copies worldwide.

Rumors have been spreading amongst fans that OneRepublic has been working on a third album while touring. Excitement grew when guitarist, Zach Filkins, posted a video on their YouTube while they were on the set of their music video "Good Life" that a third album was coming soon. A recent interview with Filkins by Alternative Addiction states that the album will further exemplify their sound and evolution: "We've been playing the songs on Waking Up for a while, and I think we are all beginning to feel like we are ready to have something new coming up." Eddie Fisher, drummer, told fans on their Twitter account that the band will continue touring with their songs from Waking Up and will then move on to the third album in the fall of 2011. OneRepublic confirmed via their official Twitter on 18 April 2011 that the album will be released sometime in 2012. Also on April 18, 2011, the band performed a new song that they wrote for the third album called "Life in Color" live for the first time in Vienna as well as in Prague on April 19, 2011.

Isn't it the song that goes "Cause you're a sky, cause you're a sky full of stars"? I am wrong again. Too late!
* offtopic :
Who said that the song I'm looking for is by that other band Coldplay? Please don't tell me!
