Nick Murphy Drops 'Missing Link' EP, Plots North American Tour
Aussie producer Nick Murphy has built an international name for himself thanks to the easy-listening electronic pop he developed under the Chet Faker moniker. Having retired that persona last year, the artist has just dropped a new EP under his birth name.

Today (May 9), Murphy has unveiled the five-song Missing Link EP through Downtown/Interscope. To preview the release, you can stream "Forget About Me" and the Kaytranada-produced "Your Time" now, or simply dive into the entire EP, which you'll also find in the Spotify player at the bottom of the page. You can also stream it via other services of your choosing here.

"Chet Faker was me trying to prove something to myself," said Murphy about dropping his old moniker. "But my tastes are pretty dynamic and I realized I've spent time resisting that. Now I want to put everything in. It's not conceptual anymore. It's just me, and it made sense to show that in a name. It feels like a rediscovery."

In addition to the new material, Murphy has announced a hefty North American tour. The trek includes Canadian stops in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.
