Well known Aussie artist Chet Faker will headline next year's Laneway music festival - but he'll be performing under a different name.
Faker has now forgone his alias and will now produce, record and perform under his birth name, Nick Murphy.
It's a significant musical evolution for Murphy who is expected to perform a fresh new show come January 30 at St Jerome's Laneway Festival's new location, Albert Park.
The first major line-up will be announced tomorrow at 10.15am.
Murphy posted on Facebook to his fans, calling the change an "evolution".
"Its been half a decade since I started releasing music as Chet Faker and all of you have been the driving force behind the music since," he said.
"Theres an evolution happening and I wanted to let you know where its going.
the next record will be under my own name, Nick Murphy."
"Chet Faker will always be a part of the music. This is next."
Laneway's new venue in Auckland has already been confirmed - moving from Silo Park to Albert Park Precinct for the January 30 event.
