Aussie superstar Gotye has announced ”Eyes Wide Open” as the successor for his smash hit ”Somebody that I Used To Know”. The latter is on its way to be the biggest hit of 2012, having topped the charts in no more than 15 countries and still going strong in the top tens.
The new track is also taken from his album ”Making Mirrors”, which has since its release entered the top ten in seventeen countries.
Be prepared to be wowed again ”Eyes Wide Open” as the song opens up a different side of the singer. The singer himself said about the track the following:
”I was out there with my old band called The Basics—and Winton is home to this phenomenal thing called the Winton Musical Fence, which is a large fence made out of metal strings stretched between posts and you can pluck it and play it with all sorts of different materials – it makes these amazing bass sounds so I sampled some bits there in 08 and they made it into the first single I put out off the new record called Eyes Wide Open”
The single was originally released mid-october 2010 in Australia as the lead up to the new album ”Making Mirrors” and is now expected to premiere June 4 in the UK.
