Actor Matt Bomer was back on the set of White Collar this past Friday (April 27) doing some filming with co-star Tim Dekay and guest star Rebecca Mader.

As you all know, Matt made an appearance on Glee in which he played Darren Criss‘ brother. During the episode the duo covered Goyte‘s “Somebody That I Used to Know.”

Gotye noted that the instrumentals were “faithful” to his original, but he took issue with the vocals: “The vocals were that pop ‘Glee style,’ ultra-dry, sounded pretty tuned.” He went on to say that he didn’t hear any “real sense” behind it, and that it sounded “like it’s playing to you from a cardboard box.”

Those comments created a big stir, so Goyte felt he had to clarify his what he said. 

During a performance for Los Angeles radio station 98.7 on Monday afternoon, Gotye explained that in the earlier interview he was referring to how “the nature of using reverb and space in a recording can change your perception of how a sound appeals to you.” He was actually criticizing, “this xylophone hook in my song — it’s kind of dinky not just in the cover version but the original song.” He remarked that somehow “that becomes the Glee cover I hated and Darren Criss is an asshole,” adding, “I thought it was really clever to transpose the song to two guys … It was a great idea.”
