Nick Murphy Shares 'Music For Silence' Album

Monday, 09 March 2020 Written by Jon Stickler

Nick Murphy has released a new album.

The Australian singer-songwriter (formerly known as Chet Faker) has shared the soothing 10-track 'Music For Silence' via digital streaming platforms after it was initially released via the meditation app CALM. Discussing the ambient-leaning project, Murphy wrote on Instagram:

"This record was deeply cathartic process for me. I was in a really bad place with myself. I thought id broken something inside my chest and all I wanted to do was get as far away from everything as possible. It felt like a split stone.

"I found an old empty church and slept there for a week with a piano and the pigeons in the rafters. I played all day each day and recorded all of it. I didn’t have the words but my hands and that space helped me work it out. Like kneading dough. These recordings healed me and I wanted to share them in the hope some of that healing might pass on to a listener. Everything is so dense these days Its important to take some spiritual rest when you can."

Murphy's last studio album, meanwhile, was 2019's 'Run Fast Sleep Naked'.
