Murphy announced his return to the Chet Faker moniker earlier this week. In an interview with NME in 2016, Murphy said the decision to drop the name had been a “long time coming”.

“When I started Chet Faker it was always a project. It’s been almost half a decade now playing music and doing this and at some point it stops feeling like a project, it’s just my life now,” Murphy said.

“I try not to call it an end or conclusion, it’s more of a progression. It’s not that what I was doing is done, it’s just that what I’m doing now has more coming in. Rather than a shift in the spectrum it’s a widening of the spectrum, if that makes sense.”

Under his own name, Murphy has released a number of EPs and albums, most recently the instrumental LP ‘Music for Silence’ in March.
