Spotlight On: OneRepublic’s “If I Lose Myself” Video


In a behind the scenes video that debuted on Billboard, Ryan Tedder says the video for “If I Lose Myself” was inspired by 12 Monkeys and one of the scenes from The Matrix – “Follow the White Rabbit.” The song itself is different from OneRepublic’s norm, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. No one wants to get stuck in a box, and OneRepublic seems to be ready to go different directions both musically and with their videos.
As for the song, listening to the lyrics and watching the video you’d never know it was inspired by Tedder’s free of flying.
“If I Lose Myself” will be on the group’s third album, Native.
