[SOFT COVERS] Just why did Ryan Tedder invite Sara Bareilles along as co-headliner on this tour? The OneRepublic frontman and ghostwriter-to-the-stars surely knew the former “Love Song” chanteuse had another hit gestating in “Brave,” a power-piano-pop bumper sticker of anthemic treacle co-written by Fun-meister Jack Antonoff.  But did he have enough industry nous to know Katy Perry’s summer jam “Roar” would be accused of aping Bareilles’ spring fling? More to the point, could he have presumed Taylor Swift would use a “Brave” duet as an excuse to troll Perry and inflame the interwebs? Did Tedder hope the ensuing controversy would dissuade critical appraisal of his middling stage presence, limited vocal range and remarkably dull body of work? Sara Bareilles, gone tomorrow, but OneRepublic might be a dangerous place to live.
