Nick Murphy shares first new song since ditching Chet Faker moniker

‘Fear Less’ follows 2014’s ‘Built on Glass’ LP.

Last week, Nick Murphy posted a message on his Facebook page, revealing he was no longer going to be releasing music under his Chet Faker moniker.

“its been half a decade since I started releasing music as Chet Faker and all of you have been the driving force behind the music since,” the Australian said.

“theres an evolution happening and I wanted to let you know where its going. the next record will be under my own name, Nick Murphy. Chet Faker will always be a part of the music. This is next.”

He’s now shared his first track under his own name, ‘Fear Less’, which can be heard on his official website and below.

The track follows 2014’s ‘Built on Glass’ LP. Listen here.
