Gotye to play SNL
Melbourne artist Gotye has had a year to remember with his breakout hit 'Somebody that I used to know' dominating Australian radio and charts, and now becoming a smash hit in countless overseas territories.
The song is presently at number 5 on the US charts. A significant reason for this is that the song crosses format boundaries and is being played on formats from CHR/Pop to Alternative to Hot AC. In Los Angeles for example, it is highly unusual to have a song played on KROQ and KIIIS FM, however Gotye has managed to do so.
And now he has been booked for Saturday Night Live on April 14. Gotye will also be playing the iconic Coachella Festival in California.
Whilst 'Somebody' was the song that launched Gotye to international stardom, his new song 'easy way out' is at Australian radio now. The extraordinary video for this is worth a look.
