The producer unveils a new version of the track using fan covers of the hit single.
Gotye has unveiled a remix of his hit single 'Somebody That I Used To Know' using YouTube users' interpretations of the song.
The Belgian musician said he "couldn't resist" the opportunity to remix the song, which has become one of the biggest selling tracks of 2012.
"I avoided using any existing remixes of the song, or any covers from tv talent shows," he wrote in a blog that accompanied the remix, which you can hear below.
"As comprehensive and extensive as I tried to be with my downloading of source videos, I know there are many clips that I missed.
"Tay Zonday's cover for instance, no internet mashup should be without him."
'Somebody That I Used To Know' went to number one on the Vodafone Big Top 40 earlier this year. The song features on 'Making Mirrors', the producer's 2011 album.
