Nick Murphy (fka Chet Faker) Shares Latest Song from New Album Out April 26

Nick Murphy will release Run Fast Sleep Naked, his first full length release since his widely praised 2014 debut Built on Glass (released as Chet Faker), on April 26 via Downtown Records / Future Classic / Opulent. Today, he releases an intimate live version of album track “Message You At Midnight,” filmed in Upstate New York and directed by Kyle Keese. Watch the video here:

Known for his compelling and captivating live show, Murphy recently announced details for a massive international tour where he will headline over 40 shows on three continents throughout 2019. These shows are selling out quickly with second nights already announced in New York, San Francisco, Toronto and more. All dates are listed below and tickets links can be found at

Murphy performed an intimate piano show in New York City earlier this month where he played stripped down versions of some of his new songs to a packed audience at Sotheby’s. See photos HERE. He also recently stopped by Billboard for a very special piano performance of three tracks from the new album, which can be seen here.

Run Fast Sleep Naked was co-produced with Dave Harrington. “Message You At Midnight” follows soulful lead single “Sanity”–a track that was written atRick Rubin´s Shangri-La studio and brings bright piano melodies, off-kilter beats, and radiant synth lines to Murphy’s unflinchingly self-aware lyrics. Watch the official video, directed by BabyBaby and filmed in the Canary Islands, here:

To make Run Fast Sleep Naked, 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, he immersed himself in intense self-examination, a process aided by his reading of Joseph Campbell’s theories of the artist’s shaman-like role in modern society. 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.
