How do you celebrate the news that your xylophone-laden smash single is the year's longest-running No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart? By releasing an album featuring 10 separate remixes of that single, of course! On Thursday (May 31), Gotye announced that 10 remixes of "Somebody That I Used To Know," featuring Kimbra, are coming to iTunes next month, ahead of a just-announced North American tour that kicks off in August.

The "Somebody That I Used To Know" remix set, arriving as a bundle on iTunes on June 8, will feature new takes on the hit song by Tiesto, Adrock and Gang Colours, among others. "Somebody" just logged its seventh week at No. 1 on the Hot 100, besting the six-week run of fun.'s "We Are Young."

This summer, Gotye will bring "Somebody That I Used To Know" and the rest of his Making Mirrors album on the road with a 33-date North American trek, kicking off on Aug. 22 in Morrison, Colo. Artists like Chairlift, Missy Higgins and Zammuto have signed on to support Gotye, who will visit venues like New York's Radio City Music Hall and Los Angeles' Greek Theatre before wrapping things up at the Austin City Limits fest on Oct. 13.

Finally, Gotye's newfound stateside success has resulted in the re-release of his album Like Drawing Blood, originally issued in 2006 in Australia. The album will arrive stateside on CD and vinyl via Fairfax/Universal Republic in July. Making Mirrors, which was released last year, dipped to No. 13 on the Billboard 200 chart last week.
