Corey O'Brien Chats with Gotye

Here's a chat I had today with Gotye.  We talked about what's it's like having the biggest song in the world, mixing genres, the U.S. tour, playing Coachella and how the video came together, which you can watch below.

 

 

And in case you haven't seen this:

The album "Making Mirrors" is in stores now (or click on the cover below to purchase from iTunes).

Thanks,

Richie T Interviews Justin of Blue October

On having his daughter on the bus with him:

"Ever sine I was a teenager people would ask me what is your goal in life? To sell a bunch of records and be able get a bus that sits your wife and your kids one day so that when you go out you can go everywhere with them. So now I get to live that dream, it's hanging out with them and then going and rocking until three in the morning and then hanging out with them again."

On life right now:

 "Things are amazing, I never knew that things could be so good ya know? I think back in 2008 when "Hate Me" blew up, that was a little crazy, that was real crazy. But now we're starting to feel that whole thing happen again with "Bleed Out" and I think I'm in a lot better place for it to happen. I enjoy life now, I enjoy every day."

On Depression:

 "I came out with songs like "The End" and songs like "Dirt Room" which were great songs, they just- they weren't connecting. I was taking that depression and that honesty and I was pushing it up so far up everybody's face that it was like oh god, this guy's got some crazy ass issues. Which of course I did, but I could have stopped and gone, yeah that's the song not me. But what's really cool about now is that I can get on stage and I play them- man all that energy is so much more there and say (whining) look at me! Now it's just so much passion.
