“Somebody That I Used to Know”
This breakthrough track has rounded out the top 5 of Billboard's Hot 100 charts, been covered on Glee, and endorsed on Twitter by Katy Perry and Ashton Kutcher. But Belgian-born, Australian-raised Gotye sees it as a far cry from the buzzed-about songs of his contemporaries. "It's so soft by comparison," he told Rolling Stone. "But maybe that's a good thing, because you need to turn it up." Cranking the volume reveals a lightly guitar-plucked, xylophone-plinked track about a failed relationship, where both Gotye and female guest Kimbra get to tell their sides of the story.
