Sette anni dopo ‘Everyday Robots’ Damon Albarn annuncia il nuovo lavoro solista fresco di firma con la Transgressive Records. ‘The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows’ (per il titolo Albarn ha preso ispirazione dal poema “Love and Memory” di John Clare) sarà fuori il 12 novembre, anticipato dalla title track, da ‘Polaris’, ‘Particles’ e ‘Royal Morning Blue’. “I have been on my own dark journey while making this record and it led me to believe that a pure source might still exist”.
Originally intended as an orchestral piece inspired by the landscapes of Iceland, this last year has seen a return to the music in lockdown and develop the work to 11 tracks. Further exploring themes of fragility, loss, emergence and rebirth.
