Ghost Gotye Story
Siobhan Dillon and Mark Evans, who lead the West End cast in the award-winning Ghost the Musical, have recently recorded their own cover version of Somebody That I Used To Know in celebration of Gotye and Kimbra's original. The original single has reached number one in the top forty charts and is currently number one in the Billboard album charts. Since its release on You Tube last Friday, Dillon and Evans' version has been seen more than 15,000 times in the past 4 days.
Mark Evans said: "We wanted to pay tribute to Gotye and Kimbra's original with our own unique version of Somebody That I Used To Know. When we first heard the track it never left our heads so our producers offered us the chance to record our own version. Our track is quite fitting to the theme of Ghost The Musical - the first lyric for example, Now and then I think of when we were together, is particularly pertinent. The Ghost fan base have been amazingly loyal and supportive so we thought we would give them something fun to watch and share. It's had an incredible response already. Our fellow cast mates have all been humming the song non-stop backstage at the Piccadilly Theatre! We have massive respect for Gotye and love his music and we hope that he will like our version."
