OneRepublic Talks Peter Gabriel Collaboration


(Radio.com) OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder spoke to Radio.com backstage as this year's We Can Survive concert and they discussed their collaboration with music legend Peter Gabriel.

"It's what you think it would be like," Tedder says, when asked what working with Gabriel is like. They collaborated with the two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Famer on the song "A.I.," from their new album Oh My My.

"Incredible. The first time I met him, it was incredible. We just hung out and talked music for two or three hours and had dinner. He was super gracious and nice."

Tedder and OneRepublic were still geeking out over getting Gabriel on the album: "People ask, 'How did you get Peter Gabriel? He doesn't do features!' I asked! No one asks him! Or they try to, he's not an easy guy to reach. So, there's that: just getting a hold of him was the hard part. After that, it was like, 'Let's have dinner and hang out and see if we vibe; I worship your body of work, and hopefully you like this song and let's do something.' And he went along with it."
