Run Fast Sleep Naked is out now on Downtown/Future Classic/Opulent

Nick Murphy‘s highly-anticipated new album, Run Fast Sleep Naked is out today. The new album is the long-awaited follow-up to the Aussie’s 2014 breakthrough debut, Built on Glass, which he released as Chet Faker.

Run Fast Sleep Naked was first teased in March with the dual single/video release of “Sanity” and was later followed by “Dangerous.” To make the album, Murphy spent four years traveling the world solo with a microphone in his suitcase, recording his vocal tracks in whichever spaces and environments most inspired him. During that time, he immersed himself in intense self-examination, a process aided by his reading of Joseph Campbell’s theories of the artist’s shaman-like role in modern society.

With its penetrating songwriting and kaleidoscopic palette, Run Fast Sleep Naked is a hypnotically candid document of that searching, an album equally informed by constant questioning and steadily arriving at fragments of truth.

In support of Run Fast Sleep Naked, Murphy is kicking off a massive world tour tonight and will headline over 40 shows on three continents. The shows are selling out quickly with second nights already announced in New York, San Francisco, Toronto and more. All dates are listed below and tickets links can be found here.
