Native is the third studio album by American band OneRepublic. It was released on March 22, 2013 in Germany and Ireland, March 25 worldwide except North America, and March 26 in North America. The album was originally planned to be released at the end of 2012, with the lead single being “Feel Again”, released on August 27, 2012. However due to the album not being completed at the time, it was pushed back to early 2013. “Feel Again” was later branded as a promotional single, and on January 8, 2013, “If I Lose Myself” was released as the lead single for the album.
It has since spawned the very successful single “Counting Stars”, peaking at number 4 so far on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming their first Top 10 hit since “Good Life” in 2010. It has also topped the charts in the United Kingdom for two non-consecutive weeks and charting within the top ten in nine countries, including attaining top five placements in Australia, Germany, Ireland and New Zealand. The song also managed to become their biggest hit in the UK, peaking at number 1. The album’s fourth single was announced as “Something I Need”, and has since been certified Platinum in Australia and Gold in New Zealand, peaking in the top 5 in both countries. As of November 2013 the album has sold 283,000 copies in the US
