Damon Albarn has officially announced his sophomore solo album, The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows.

It’s out November 12th via Transgressive Records, and he also shared the title track and revealed rescheduled 2022 tour dates.
Originally intended as an orchestral piece inspired by the landscapes of Iceland, the Gorillaz mastermind revisited the project during COVID-19 lockdown and further developed it to explore themes of fragility, loss, emergence, and rebirth. The title is taken from John Clare’s poem Love and Memory.
The Nearer the Fountain is Albarn’s solo follow-up to 2014’s Everyday Robots.
