Chet Faker announces new album 'Hotel Surrender'

After reviving the moniker near the end of last year, Nick Murphy has now announced a brand new album under the name Chet Faker.

The new full-length 'Hotel Surrender' is his first as Chet Faker since the 2014 album 'Built on Glass', is being previewed by the new lead single 'Whatever Tomorrow', and is due out on the 16th July via his own label Detail Records in partnership with BMG.

Speaking about the new record, Murphy said, “There were a lot of heavy perspective shifters for me. I really just thought of the music in a different light. I look at it as a mass therapy now. I think I used to see it as this plight, like I was on a crusade or this creative odyssey. Now I see that it’s more Shamanistic. You’ve got to find some light—or sometimes dark, whatever’s right—and share it. I realized that was the heart of the Chet Faker project. And I felt like the world was hurting, so I thought, ‘I can do a small something to give people some joy.”

While adding about the new single, “It’s a rebellion to this idea that you have to wait for the things you need. It felt like we were being sold tomorrow and we were paying for today. I was saying, ‘Fuck your tomorrow, we deserve our lives now.’”
