In an official statement, the artist formerly known as Chet Faker shared the following on all his social media channels:
"its 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.
theres an evolution happening and I wanted to let you know where its 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."
It's been a while since we've heard something substantial from Chet Faker/Nick Murphy.
He did release a track entitled "In-Between" at the very beginning of this year, which you could read as him alluding to this decision.
We are excited where he will take his music under his real name Nick Murphy. Check out one our favourite from the man himself collaborating with Flume.
