Nick Murphy, formerly known as Chet Faker, has just released a new track titled ‘Medication’, as he prepares to kick off the second leg of an international tour that will take him across North America, mainland Europe and the UK, playing Albert Hall in Manchester on 2 December and Troxy in London on 5 December.
Of the track, Murphy notes: “It’s a song about ignorance and flawed logic. I wanted to see what it was like writing about ego-fuelled confidence” Murphy recently sat down with Noisey to discuss the new song, tour and his evolution from Chet Faker to Nick Murphy. ‘Medication’ is available now via Future Classic/[PIAS].

The New York-based Australian producer & musician’s new live show has been winning over fans in the weeks since he kicked off his global tour last month. Consequence of Sound recently noted, “Murphy spared nothing when it came to visuals and sound. What we heard was deep and resounding, a statement performance to make a new (albeit his actual) name for himself.”
Murphy released his Missing Link EP in May, his first release since announcing that he’ll be recording and perform under his given name and stepping away from his Chet Faker moniker. The collection bridges the sonic shift between who he was as an artist and what’s next for him as Nick Murphy.
As Chet Faker, Murphy’s album Built on Glass received wide critical acclaim and the single ‘Gold’ has received almost 100 million views to-date. He performed the track on national TV and has performed sold out headline shows and at major festivals across the globe.
