Gotye is reportedly hard at work a new album, the follow up to 2011 hugely successful Making Mirrors, said to be taking shape as a concept album dedicated to electronic music pioneers.
“He’s living in New York now and he’s currently working on a concept album – which sort of follows the line of this track,” Lior told the radio listeners while introducing State Of The Art – a song from Gotye’s Making Mirrors that’s dedicated to the vintage Cotillion organ, before adding the following:
“[He’s] looking at electronic music and pioneers of electronic music and dedicating a song to some of those pioneers. And stylistically [‘State Of The Art’] was cited as being [closest] to the style of the music that he’s working on at the moment.”
This is the first news about new music in a long time from the Somebody That You Used To Know singer, who has spent a lot of time lately with his band The Basics whose latest album The Age Of Entitlement just hit the shelves.
The Basics will be heading out on an all-encompassing tour off the back of the release, this October.
