Gotye releases entire album of'Somebody That I Used To Know'remixes

Have you remixed or covered Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know? If not you’ll soon be in the minority.

The song has been tackled (and sometimes butchered) by a cast of thousands including the cast of Glee, Eskimo Joe, Tina Arena, Tex Perkins, Haley Williams, fun., Alvin and The Chipmonks and every contestant in every half-arsed singing competition on earth.

Even Gotye now claims that he’s sick of the song he told NME earlier this year that “there’s only so many times you can listen to the one song” and when he won three awards at the APRA’s earlier this week he apologised to all “those people who listen to commercial radio and had to listen to it 50 times a day at their workplace.”

Despite these comments, Gotye is set to release an entire album featuring nothing but remixes of the massive hit from acts including Tiesto, Bibio, M-Phazes, Faux Pas and Adrock.

Just think of all the vintage samplers and keyboards Gotye is going to be buying now!

How much of a say in this do you think he actually had?

zero, it would be good if it was the novely remixes such as that lakers fan singing

I guess he has made so much money from this that now he can just focus on making music for the fans

my guess is, while it wasn't necessarily his idea, he certainly could have vetoed it if he wanted. Given that artists have a direct link to fans now, often through social media, and that news of this album will break worldwide, it would have looked pretty bad for the label on an international scale if the album got released and Gotye came out and said, "I had nothing to do with this and I asked them not to release it."

Of course, that wouldn't have stopped them releasing it, but I guess it would have depended on how much they valued their brand/reputation.
