OneRepublic Premieres 'Counting Stars' Music Video


The pop/rock band performs in a basement beneath an ongoing church congregation on their latest clip.

Pop rock band OneRepublic premieres their new music video for "Counting Stars", the latest single from their third studio album "Native". Frontman Ryan Tedder wrote and produced the track while acclaimed short film director James Lees helmed the almost five-minute clip.

The quintet takes over an old church basement as the set for their new music video, as they play their new single while a congregation worship takes place on the directly above them. As Tedder sings, "Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep / Dreaming about the things that we could be / But baby, I've been, I've been praying hard / Said, no more counting dollars / We'll be counting stars," so does the pastor mesmerize the small crowd that has gathered around to hear him preach.

As a pray-over session ensues, the worshippers get overly excited, stand up and start stomping on the old, weak floor beneath their feet. As the band raises their arms to clap along with the song's heavy beat, a few members of the congregation start to flip out, putting more and more pressure on the building, with one guy finally drilling a gaping hole onto the floor.

Fans first got wind of "Counting Stars" when the band posted the song on Twitter, along with other tracks like "Preacher" and "Something's Gotta Give". Prior to its release, OneRepublic first debuted singles "Feel Again" and "If I Lose Mysel".
