Hand numbered, 180g, 2LP first pressing of Nick Murphy's lauded 2020 album, Music For Silence, on Detail Records in collaboration with Diggers Factory.

LIMITED TO 500 COPIES WORLDWIDE.

"This record was a 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." - Nick Murphy

Melbourne-bred singer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Nick Murphy burst out of the SoundCloud streaming world and onto the global stage with the release of his 2014 platinum selling debut LP Built on Glass, released under the Chet Faker moniker. On the heels of that album’s success, he spent the next half decade on the road, traveling with a microphone in his suitcase, recording the first Nick Murphy album, 2019’s Run Fast Sleep Naked, on the fly.

Murphy followed that up in early 2020 with a surprise instrumental LP called Music for Silence, an exploratory ten-track collection initially released exclusively via the Calm app. The record saw wider availability in early March 2020 via Murphy’s own Detail Records — an eerily prophetic release that foreshadowed the isolation wrought by the impending Covid-19 pandemic.

In late 2020, Murphy revived the Chet Faker project with the single “Low” and released the highly anticipated second Chet Faker album, Hotel Surrender, in 2021. That was followed by the first Nick Murphy & The Program LP, Take In The Roses, produced by Dave Harrington of Darkside.
