Gotye will make his Saturday Night Live debut as the musical guest on Saturday, April 14th, airing on NBC at 11:30 PM EST. The Australian native will be playing songs off his critically acclaimed Making Mirrors, released earlier this year. The show will be hosted by Academy Award-nominee Josh Brolin.
Gotye first caught American ears with platinum-certified single “Somebody That I Used To Know” which has been in the Billboard Hot 100 for 10 weeks, racked up over 119 million views on YouTube and currently holds a spot in the iTunes Top 10 and the Billboard Top 40. Watch the video HERE.
Gotye kicks off his completely sold-out Spring tour this week, culminating in his first US festival appearance at Coachella. Check www.gotye.com for full dates.
Praise for Making Mirrors:
“Making Mirrors finds Gotye making the most of a canny notion: that the pop sounds of the ’80s didn’t fall out of fashion so much as fall victim to dated production. By freshening up the feel but maintaining the drama, he lands on a batch of songs timeless enough to survive the next 30 years.” –NPR
“…Ingenious, oddly touching, refreshingly emphatic bedroom pop.” –Rolling Stone
“…pop magician.”-The New Yorker
“…The songs have a way of warping old ideas into something fascinating.”- LA Times
