After announcing details of new album - the first under his ‘real name’ - last week, Nick Murphy (the artist formerly known as Chet Faker) has confirmed a trio of UK and Ireland live dates.
‘Run Fast Sleep Naked’ is set for release on 26th April, and he’s already shared single ‘Sanity’ from it.
“It’s almost like I was finding different shapes and colours from around the world, and then bringing them back and putting them all together,” Nick says about the record, having made it in Tokyo, New Zealand and NYC among other places. “If you sit in one space for a long period of time, you get settled and stop experiencing the world in a new way,” he adds. “There’s a kind of power in leaping into the void without set structures and systems in place.”
The dates take place in London, Manchester and Dublin this October.
22 London O2 Academy Brixton
24 Manchester Albert Hall
25 Dublin Olympia
