Rising to prominence in 2011 with his cover of Blackstreet’s ‘No Diggity’, Chet Faker became a global phenomenon thanks to a 2013 collaborative EP with Flume and his platinum-selling debut studio album, Built On Glass in 2014. The album debuted at No.1 on the ARIA Chart, with three tracks entering triple j’s hottest 100 that year and ‘Talk Is Cheap’ claiming the number one spot. The success of the album saw Chet Faker tour the world, taking the stage at some of the world’s leading festivals, from Coachella to Lollapolooza and more, showcasing his exceptional live performance and winning the hearts of music fans globally.
In 2020, much to the excitement of fans around the world, Chet Faker returned with the release of ‘Low’, followed by his latest album Hotel Surrender (2021). With Rolling Stone defining the record as a “welcome return… created with the same ethereal qualities that turned him into a global sensation”, the project marked a new era. In May, Chet Faker released the new single ‘Something Like This’. More new music is imminent.
