"Rescue Me" is the latest single released on May 17 2019 from American band OneRepublic. The band announced the single on May 14 2019 and shared a clip of a boy looking at a large waterfall before creepy music continued. "Rescue Me” is slated to be featured on OneRepublic’s fifth album, which is currently work in progress.
OneRepublic’s “Rescue Me” revolves around the male protagonist reminiscing on the good old times he and his ex-girlfriend had in their now-defunct relationship. He wishes to salvage the relationship and hopes both would cooperate to rescue it. "Rescue Me" is a catchy song filled with progressive and rhythmic drum beats.
The video was filmed in Silverton, Oregon and directed by Christian Lamb of Black Dog Films. It was produced by Holly Harding with cinematography by Mack Fisher and choreography by Sherrie Silver. The video also featured Cody Bingham from Dancing with the Stars: Juniors.
Ryan Tedder highlighted, “Rescue Me was written very quickly, 10 minutes or less almost a stream of consciousness. It was me telling Brent, our bass player and cellist, ‘I wanna write a song with a concept I had started a few years ago (called “Rescue Me”)’. The concept: In every friendship there’s a give and take, but sometimes you have to wonder if the love you give is the love you’ll get.”
