Rich Love

Album: Single release only (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • This song finds OneRepublic teaming up with Norwegian musical production duo Seeb, whose remix of Mike Posner's "I Took a Pill in Ibiza" charted all over the world in 2016. The two acts have collaborated before: Seeb remixed OneRepublic's Oh My My track "Kids."
  • OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder originally penned the tune with the band's bass guitarist Brent Kutzle. Tedder recalled the story of the track during an interview with Schön! magazine:

    "It's a song that I wrote with Brent. He had this guitar riff that he gave me back around Christmas and I wrote over it. Really, it was just vocals and guitars and then the guys from Seeb were in LA visiting and they came by my studio and said, 'If you guys have anything that's just guitars and vocals that you don't know what to do with, send it us and let us mess with it' - which is the same thing they did with 'I Took A Pill In Ibiza.'"
