Set for release on 12th November via Transgressive Records, Damon Albarn has confirmed that his new solo album ‘The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows’ is on the way.
Initially intended to be an orchestral piece inspired by the mountains of Iceland, Damon says of the record, “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.”
