Murphy has also released a new video featuring live footage filmed during his fall 2017 European tour. Directed by Oscar Zabala, the footage is set to “Sanity”--the lead single from the new album that has been added to Spotify's New Music Friday playlist in 33 countries--and can be seen here:

Out April 26, Run Fast Sleep Naked is Murphy’s first full length release since his widely praised 2014 debut Built on Glass (released as Chet Faker) and was co-produced with Dave Harrington. Soulful lead single “Sanity” was written at Rick RubinĀ“s Shangri-La studio and brings bright piano melodies, off-kilter beats, and radiant synth lines to his unflinchingly self-aware lyrics. Watch the official video, directed by BabyBaby and filmed in the Canary Islands, here:

To make Run Fast Sleep Naked, 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.

Although Murphy captured his vocal performances in spaces across the globe—including his grandmother’s living room, a studio in Tokyo, a vacation rental he shared with his family in New Zealand, and his own New York City apartment—the musical component to Run Fast Sleep Naked was mainly recorded at Figure 8 in Brooklyn. And in sculpting the album’s shape shifting sound, Murphy enlisted over 15 musicians and a full orchestra, embedding each song with unexpected textures and wildly varied tones.

In bringing Run Fast Sleep Naked to life, Murphy rigorously questioned his own motivations for making music and his fundamental intentions as an artist. He discovered a new touchstone for his creative output: music that empowers and elevates each listener to a more exalted version of himself or herself, and ultimately undoes a certain emotional suppression imposed from the outside world.

Run Fast Sleep Naked is the latest in a series of widely acclaimed releases from the singer / producer / multi-instrumentalist, including Built on Glass—a platinum-selling effort that won him seven ARIA Music Awards including Best Male Artist and Producer of the Year, and lead to him playing sold out shows on five continents; appearing at major international festivals including Coachella and Glastonbury; performing on television internationally including The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live!; and seeing his music videos receive hundreds of millions of views, including over 180 million views alone for his MTV VMA-nominated video for “Gold,” directed by Hiro Murai (Atlanta).
