Chet Faker's New Animated Video for "1998"

by Gary Pini

This track is from Mr. Faker's debut album, Built On Glass; but before we go any further, let's acknowledge that his real name is Nick Murphy, he's from Australia, he covered "No Diggity" for this Super Bowl ad and he knows who Chet Baker was.  In case you don't, he was an acclaimed jazz trumpeter (and vocalist) who, sadly, was also a notorious druggie that OD'd in Amsterdam in 1988. He loved the ladies, and the ladies loved him. Anyway, we'd like to give a little shout-out to Grace Lee who did the great illustrations for Faker's new video, "1998":  Nice work, Grace!
