An artist of considerable range, Melbourne-raised Brooklyn-based artist Chet Faker released his chart-topping critically acclaimed debut album Built On Glass last year on Future Classic / Downtown. After announcing a string of concerts (most of them already sold out), he has decided to extend his East Coast Aussie tour to include an additional show at the Sydney Opera House in November. These shows, dubbed the Built On Live tour, will see Faker perform rarely heard live songs, with an expanded band and special guests.
In other news, Chet Faker also shared previously unreleased track “Bend”, which was recorded during the Built on Glass writing period. He is now working on new material holed up in a studio in Brooklyn and aiming for a more “heavily performance-based” sound for his second studio album.
