Australian producer Chet Faker has announced details of his debut album and a UK tour.
The album, titled Built On Glass, will be out on 14th April and is the follow up to Chet Faker’s gold-selling debut EP Thinking in Textures. The video for first single from the album, ‘Talk Is Cheap’, can be seen above.
Speaking about the album, Chet said: “I recorded the album at my home studio. I rent a small converted cooling room in the heritage listed North Melbourne meat market. Honesty is a big part of the record. I recorded with easily affordable equipment, the budget was tiny. It’s the first time I’ve ever worked on a full-length and I felt like hi-fidelity wasn’t something to strive for working in a room on my own. Lyrically, I wanted to explore how my life directly affected my music – that’s the glass, I guess.”
