In the making of his sophomore album, Nick Murphy spent four years traveling the world solo with a microphone in his suitcase, recording his vocal tracks in whichever spaces and environments most inspired him.

During that time, the Melbourne-bred singer/producer/multi-instrumentalist formerly known as Chet Faker immersed himself in intense self-examination. With its penetrating songwriting and kaleidoscopic palette, Run Fast Sleep Naked is a hypnotically candid document of that searching, an album equally informed by constant questioning and steadily arriving at fragments of truth.

Nick Murphy has played sold-out shows on five continents, appeared at major festivals like Coachella and Glastonbury, and taken the stage at The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live!.

Since the release of his debut album, he’s dropped the Chet Faker moniker and made his debut under his own name with the brooding 2016 single “Fear Less,” with follow-up single “Stop Me” premiering in mid-2016 and Missing Link arriving in spring 2017. Don’t miss Nick Murphy reveal what’s next in 2019.
