Milk It: Gotye to Release Ten-Track Album of Remixes of One Song

What do you do when you unexpectedly have a smash hit song, one whose success you are exceedingly unlikely to ever duplicate? Simple—squeeze every last little drop of success you can out of it. Gotye will be just doing that with his seven-week chart-topping single "Somebody That I Used to Know," releasing a remix set to iTunes with ten different versions of his signature song. You've probably heard the Tiesto version already, but there's plenty more where that came from, including spins on the breakup ballad by such luminaries as Sneaker Fox, M-Phazes, 4Frnt and Miami Nights 1984. (We're pretty sure at least a couple of those are just made-up aliases of Gotye himself to stretch out the collection to an even ten.)

The complete tracklist, for the morbidly curious:

1. Somebody That I Used To Know (feat. Kimbra) [Gang Colours remix]

2. Somebody That I Used To Know (feat. Kimbra) [Bibio remix]

3. Somebody That I Used To Know (feat. Kimbra) [M-Phazes remix]

4. Somebody That I Used To Know (feat. Kimbra) [Faux Pas remix]

5. Somebody That I Used To Know (feat. Kimbra) [4Frnt remix]

6. Somebody That I Used To Know (feat. Kimbra) [Tiesto remix]

7. Somebody That I Used To Know (feat. Kimbra) [Sneaker Fox remix]

8. Somebody That I Used To Know (feat. Kimbra) [Dan Aux remix]

9. Somebody That I Used To Know (feat. Kimbra) [Miami Nights 1984 remix]

10. Somebody That I Used To Know (feat. Kimbra) [Adrock remix]

They should have snuck a "(feat. Adele)" or "(feat. Rick Ross)" in there just to see if anybody was paying attention.

By the way, in case you didn't know—Gotye's Making Mirrors is actually a seriously boss album, a diverse collection of supremely odd pop/rock gems, most of which sound nothing like "Somebody That I Used to Know," but are nearly as compelling. But hey, if listening to the ten versions of escalating degrees of EDM dirtiness—or maybe they threw a couple dubstep versions in there for variety's sake, who knows—is more your thing, then who are we to judge? Gotye aims only to please.
