(Radio.com) OneRepublic have a new song, "Wherever I Go," their first from their upcoming album. What's it about? "It's about obsession' the Calvin Klein fragrance," frontman Ryan Tedder jokes in an interview with Radio.com. He notes that he doesn't like discussing lyrics in too much detail, but he's happy to talk about the video.

"The quote that's the theme of the video is a famous quote, I don't know who said it--so I'll say that I made it up--it's 'The mass of mankind lead lives of quiet desperation.'" [The quote is actually from Henry David Thoreau's Walden from 1854.] "The idea that probably more than half the population has those moments: you walk to work, and you see everyone else walking to work dressed as you are, drinking your Starbucks going, 'God, is this really it?' And [in the video], the guy has that moment."

The band make a short cameo in the video. Tedder says, "Most of our favorite videos as a band, the artists are not in the videos. It's an art piece. If it's going to be a piece of art, let it be a piece of art. Squeezing the band in is tricky. We barely fit in to the narrative of this video. Barely. And I could have easily removed us from it."
