Fun. and Paramore’s Hayley Williams Cover Gotye’s ‘Somebody That I Used to Know’
It seems like people can't get enough of Gotye's unexpected hit song, 'Somebody That I Used to Know.' From the cast of 'Glee' to New York prog rockers Coheed and Cambria, no one can resist giving their own take on the breakup ballad. Fellow surprise hit makers fun. have decided to do their own cover of the track with help from Paramore's princess Hayley Williams, which you can listen to below.
Fuse reports that fun. recorded the song during their recent visit to BBC's Radio 1 Live Lounge session in the U.K. Their interpretation of 'Somebody That I Used to Know' is just as stripped down as the original, using a guitar and subtle piano keys. Williams fills in during Kimbra's part, all the way from Los Angeles, Calif.
Fun. will resume their North American tour in support of their second studio album, 'Some Nights,' starting on May 28 at the Sasquatch Festival in George, Wash. They will perform their chart topper 'We Are Young' at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards on June 3 in Los Angeles.
"It's one of the most flattering things that's happened to us on this rollercoaster ride of this song and this album," singer Nate Ruess told MTV. "I just remember watching all those award shows -- like the Video Music Awards and Movie Awards -- and you always wonder like how they're doing it, what their big reveal is going to be, all those other type of things."
