Gotye spoke to NME.com about the anticipated follow up to Making Mirrors, his third album, which also turned out to be the Australian musician's breakthrough.
"I can't put a timeline on it," he said. "But I do know that I'd like to do a more traditional record, focusing more on chords and harmonies and things like that. I'd like to collaborate more with people and make more use of my band, rather than just me working on my own."
He also shared the details of the process he endures when creating tunes, saying, "I work in stages, I usually need to withdraw for a while and experiment with things before my better ideas start floating to the top. I have a lot of unfinished things and demos from the last record, but I usually like to start afresh when I make a new record, so going by my previous track record, a couple of years wouldn't be out of the question."
The success of his much loved single "Somebody That I Used to Know" will not alter how he does things moving forward, either. He said, "It'll [the recording budget] be driven by the music, that's all. The success of this album means I might allow myself a bigger budget, but I don't think more money would be a big benefit to my music."
We love when an artist sticks to their guns.
