The track was recorded in Santorini, Greece, a beautiful island south of Athens in the Mediterranean Sea. In a behind-the-scenes video of the making of the track the band can be seen sailing, riding 4-wheelers, and living the “Good Life” while recording the single.
At one point, Ryan Tedder tells the band that they’ll record part of the song with Garage Band which is a program associated with Mac computers. The verse Tedder is referring to is: “Take us down and we keep trying/40,000 feet keep flying/Take us down and we keep trying/40,000 feet keep flying.”
“If I Lose Myself” is the lead single off OneRepublic’s upcoming third album Native, slated for a March 26th release.
