Chet Faker shares previously unreleased track ‘Bend’

The song was originally recorded during sessions for the Australian’s 2014 debut ‘Built on Glass’

Australian electronic musician Chet Faker has released a new track, ‘Bend’. Previously an unreleased cut, it was originally recorded during sessions for his 2014 debut album ‘Built on Glass’. It’s out on 26th June via Future Classic/Opulent.

Speaking about the song in a press release, Chet Faker says, “‘Bend’ was on ‘Built on Glass’ until the last minute. I recorded it in 2013 and kinda wanted to put it out since. It’s always felt like a part of ‘Built on Glass’ and since [the upcoming Australian] tour is the sort of live “director’s cut” of the album it made sense to release this before it lost context.”

Speaking of tours, Chet Faker’s European summer live dates are as follows:

JUN
17 Tivoli Vredenburg, Utecht, Netherlands
19 Best Kept Secret Festival, Netherlands
20 Hurricane Festival, Germany
21 Southside Festival, Germany
