Nick Murphy revived his highly acclaimed Chet Faker project in October 2020 with the release of “Low,” and now he’s shared a video for a follow-up single called “Get High.”
The new track comes with a catchy piano line and raw vocals, as Murphy sings of escapism over a funky beat. Atop groovy soul instrumentals, Murphy sings lines like, “I wanna get high, I wanna take a break from myself.” The accompanying flashy video sees Murphy performing at, and on top of, his piano beneath kaleidoscopic, paint-like effects.
“Sometimes you just need a break,” Murphy explains of the track. “I find myself wanting to escape just for a little while and the song sort of showed up on its own.”
Watch the video for “Get High” below.
With Low marking Murphy’s first release as Chet Faker since 2015, and now with the release of a second single, could a new album be in the works?
