Chet Faker Built On Glass on 2LP + Download

Built on Glass is the highly anticipated follow up to Australian musician Chet Faker’s gold-selling debut 2012 EP Thinking in Textures. Built on Glass was recorded and produced by Chet himself over a two-year period and melds his effortless R&B vocals and pop melodies with a youth spent making house, disco and intricate beats.

“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."

Chet has had a dream run since the release of Thinking in Textures in 2012: sell-out shows across Australia, the US, UK and Europe; festival slots including the Laneway Festival, Splendour, Falls and Field Day; media support the world over (including Radio 1’s Zane Lowe and Huw Stephens, Pitchfork, Prefix Mag and Filter); deals with influential labels Downtown Records (US), PIAS and Chess Club (UK); and a series of heralded collaborations with Say Lou Lou, Kilo Kish and Flume.

Back home, Chet Faker was nominated for five 2012 Australian Independent Record Labels Association (AIR) Awards, winning for Best Independent Single/EP and Breakthrough Independent Artist. He was also nominated for two Rolling Stone Awards for Best New Talent and Best Independent Release, winning Best Independent Release. His Flume collaboration, single "Drop the Game" and Lockjaw EP, was certified gold within weeks of its release and polled at #5 in the 2014 triple j Hottest 100.

“Chet Faker has carved out an instant niche for himself with this surreal, homespun blend of soul, R&B, pop and electronics.” - Stack Magazine
