Chet Faker releases first song under his own name

The Australian musician revealed the decision to drop his moniker last week

Nick Murphy – formerly known as Chet Faker – has shared the first song to be recorded under his own name.

The Australian musician announced on his Facebook page last week that he would no longer be going by the name of Chet Faker, declaring that “there’s an evolution happening” that deemed the dropping of his stage name necessary. He did add, however, that “Chet Faker will always be a part of the music.”

Today (September 12), Murphy has shared the first song to be released under his own name. ‘Fear Less’ is streaming now on the artist’s official website, which you can listen to through the link below.

Murphy’s sole album as Chet Faker, ‘Built On Glass’, was released in April 2014.
