Gotye slams Glee version of his hit
Gotye has slammed the 'Glee' version of his hit 'Somebody That I Used to Know', calling it ''ultra dry.''

Gotye has slammed the 'Glee' version of his hit 'Somebody That I Used to Know'.

The Australian singer and multi-instrumentalist's track was featured on a the US TV show earlier this month, but he was less than impressed with the results.

He told Australia's The Sunday Mail newspaper: ''They did such a faithful arrangement of the instrumentals but the vocals were that pop 'Glee' style, ultra-dry, sounded pretty tuned and the rock has no real sense, like it's playing to you from a cardboard box.''

In another interview, the musician - real name Wally de Backer - said: ''It made it sound dinky and wrong.''

The version of the track which appeared in 'Glee' was performed by Darren Criss and Matt Bomer.

'Somebody That I Used to Know' has been a huge hit worldwide, topping the charts in 17 countries, and the musician admitted he finds the success of the track - which he recorded in a home studio on a tiny budget - is ''surreal.''

He added: ''I wrote the song and everything else has been a series of surprises

''In a way, after you've made a record, you've made it and everything else that happens feels like you are a bystander. It is kind of surreal.''

Gotye is one of only four Australian acts to top the US Billboard chart, alongside INXS, Men at Work and Savage Garden.
