About This Show

Accompanied by his band and a string quartet, the performance marks a rare solo appearance for Damon Albarn, who presents tracks from across his songbook, including his forthcoming new album The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows, out 12 November on Transgressive Records. The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows, originally intended as an orchestral piece inspired by the landscapes of Iceland, has seen Albarn return to the music in lockdown over the last year and develop the work to 11 tracks which further explore themes of fragility, loss, emergence and rebirth. The result is a panoramic collection of songs with Albarn as storyteller. The album title is taken from a John Clare poem Love and Memory.
