Chet Faker

Songwriter and artist, Nick Murphy has announced his new album from his Chet Faker project, ‘Hotel Surrender’, which will arrive on 16th July via his own label, Detail Records in partnership with BMG. Additionally, Murphy unleashes a new Chet Faker single and video, ‘Whatever Tomorrow’

Murphy says of the album:

“There were a lot of heavy perspective shifters for me,” he recalls. “I really just thought of the music in a different light. I look at it as a mass therapy now. I think I used to see it as this plight, like I was on a crusade or this creative odyssey. Now I see that it’s more Shamanistic. You’ve got to find some light—or sometimes dark, whatever’s right—and share it. I realized that was the heart of the Chet Faker project. And I felt like the world was hurting, so I thought, ‘I can do a small something to give people some joy.”

On ‘Whatever Tomorrow’ Murphy says:

“It’s a rebellion to this idea that you have to wait for the things you need. It felt like we were being sold tomorrow and we were paying for today. I was saying, ‘Fuck your tomorrow, we deserve our lives now.’”
