Recently the video for Gotye’s new single of his upcoming album was leaked. This was the Belgium-born Australian’s first leak so far, and I think he handled it great. Wally released the video on vimeo right away and the single is available to purchase through iTunes (Australia) as well as directly from his site gotye.com. You can also listen to the track on his soundcloud.
The song is a duet featuring Kimbra who also has a new album coming out soon. It is an extremely emotional and powerful song. The first half of the song is simple, soothing, smooth, and beautiful. When the chorus comes in at around a minute and a half, you get hit with a wave. It honestly took my breathe away the first time I heard it. The vocals of Wally and Kimbra go together perfect, it sends chills down your spine.
The video is very moving as well with some creative stop-time animation and full body painting. I can imagine making this video was a lengthy shoot with a lot of standing around, but it turned out fantastic. I don’t know about you all, but this song will be on repeat in my headphones for at least a week. Enjoy!
