OneRepublic 's new album, Native , was supposed to come out this year, but it's been postponed 'til early 2013.  Still, fans can get a taste of the band's new music Monday night, when they debut a new single during their appearance on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest on ABC.

According to Billboard , OneRepublic will perform the song "If I Lose Myself," which is being billed as the first single from the new album, even though they did release another new song, "Feel Again," this past summer.  Speaking about the album's delay, frontman Ryan Tedder told Billboard, "We're stoked to actually have this thing come out because we haven't put out an album in three years now and frankly I don't really want to do that again."

He explained, "I think the world's changed, musically and that's like the worst thing you can do as an artist today is to just disappear for three years. To just go away.  So our new model is let's always keep a fresh flow of ideas -- and it keeps you inspired and creative. You're constantly pushing yourself to write, to write and to put out new material."

The band recently posted a snippet of another new song from Native , "Counting Stars."

Native will be the group's third album.  Their last disc, Waking Up , produced the hits "Good Life," "All the Right Moves" and "Secrets."
