"Easy Way Out"
"Save Me"

"Save Me" is a song written and recorded by a Flemish-Australian singer and songwriter Gotye. The song was released in Australia by Eleven Music on 13 August 2012 as the fifth single from his third studio album, Making Mirrors (2011), a year after the release of his signature song "Somebody That I Used to Know".


Like most of the tracks from Gotye's album, he wrote and recorded the song in a barn on his parent's block of land in the Mornington Peninsula near his hometown, Melbourne in Victoria. The song is lyrically based on Gotye's depression, and the aid that his girlfriend, Tash Parker, brings, which some other tracks also use as subject matter.

A music video to accompany the release of "Save Me" was first released onto YouTube on 8 August 2012 at a total length of three minutes and fifty-four seconds. The video was directed and animated by Peter Lowey.[1]
