The Australian singer and producer Nick Murphy, has been performing under the pseudonym Chet Faker, throughout most of his success.
However, last week the artist announced via Facebook that he’s dropping the familiar stage name and taking on a new identity — his old one.
“It’s been half a decade since I started releasing music as Chet Faker and all of you have been the driving force behind the music since,” the post reads.
“There’s an evolution happening and I wanted to let you know where it’s going. The next record will be under my own name, Nick Murphy. Chet Faker will always be a part of the music. This is next.”
With the announcement, Murphy debuted a new song titled, “Fear Less”. Listen to the new tune in the player above.
