Melbourne-raised, New York-based producer, songwriter and artist, Nick Murphy unveils the latest single from his Chet Faker project;‘Feel Good’ taken from the forthcoming album, Hotel Surrender, out July 16 via Detail Records/BMG.
Released alongside the single is a stunning music video, an unbroken single shot with Murphy rollerblading in the golden Californian desert sunset. Produced by globally acclaimed production company FREENJOY (Previous works include The Weeknd, Ariana Grande/Doja Cat, Travis Scott et al), the video unearths Murphy’s relatively unknown passion for rollerblading, a hobby that nearly derailed the entire production on the first take. Murphy explains: “I broke my hand filming this last week and I don’t regret one bit of it.”
“Feel Good” appears on Hotel Surrender, a 10-track LP written, recorded and produced by Murphy and mixed by Dave Fridmann that reintroduces the swaggering bass lines and electrifying melodies that made fans fall in love with Chet Faker across the world.
Murphy finished the majority of songs in March 2020, he then saw the record’s completion process take on an even deeper new meaning as he sought to find happiness in the throes of the global pandemic. Today’s single joins previous album predecessors, ‘Low’, ‘Get High’, ‘Whatever Tomorrow’ and it’s recent Soulwax remix.
Murphy goes into further detail about ‘Feel Good’; “The song is called ‘Feel Good’. The song is about feeling good. The video is me feeling good. Anymore talking is just gonna kill the vibe.”
