Celebrating the tenth anniversary of OneRepublic’s hit song ‘Counting Stars,’ frontman Ryan Tedder collaborates with Samsung to release a remastered version.

To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the hit song “Counting Stars,” Grammy-winner and OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder collaborated with Samsung, using the Galaxy Buds2 Pro to finalize a remastered version released on Friday.

“When I’m in the studio listening to songs like ‘Counting Stars,’ I’m hearing them on professional speakers. As soon as I began to reimagine this one, it was essential for me to get out of the studio and have the listener experience,” says Tedder. “Using my Galaxy Buds2 Pro, I was able to review every version of the song exactly as our fans would hear it, and I’m confident that listeners will love this reimagined version as much as I do.”

“Ryan Tedder’s remaster of ‘Counting Stars’ using Samsung’s Galaxy Buds2 Pro exemplifies Universal Music Group for Brands’ commitment to harnessing the power of music and culture to elevate brands,” says Naomi McMahon, EVP of Strategic Marketing & Global Partnerships at UMG. “This partnership demonstrates the boundless possibilities that arise when creativity meets cutting-edge technology.”

Three-time Grammy award-winning songwriter and producer Ryan Tedder has worked with everyone from Adele to Paul McCartney, Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, U2, Miley Cyrus, and Lil Nas X, in addition to his position as the lead singer, writer, and producer of the multi-platinum selling band OneRepublic.

Most recently, Tedder was a writer on Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande’s No. 1 albums, as well as writing and producing the Billboard No. 1 hit “Sucker” for the Jonas Brothers – the most-played song in the world in 2019. Ryan also wrote and produced the title track for John Legend’s 2021 Grammy award-winning album “Bigger Love.” He is currently in the studio working with Machine Gun Kelly, Lil Nas X, The Jonas Brothers, and Miley Cyrus on their upcoming projects.

OneRepublic released their debut album, “Dreaming Out Loud,” in 2007, which included the smash hit single “Apologize.” The group’s sophomore album, 2009’s “Waking Up,” produced the hit singles “All the Right Moves,” “Secrets,” and “Good Life.” In 2013, the album “Native” featured the No. 1 hit, “Counting Stars.”
