Damon Albarn To Take New Project The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows On Tour

Wednesday, 02 October 2019 Written by Jon Stickler

Damon Albarn will take a new project on tour in 2020.

Titled The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows, the venture is inspired by the landscapes of Iceland and finds the Blur and Gorillaz frontman combining an ensemble of musicians with visuals created by Icelandic filmmakers capturing the changing seasons, and vocals and recordings of natural sounds and instruments. A synopisis reads:

"The land of the midnight sun, Iceland is a unique country, filled with an abundance of natural beauty; glaciers, volcanoes, thermal springs, mountains and stunning headlands. Stretching across two continents; it's a land where North America and Eurasian tectonic plates meet. What can be more fascinating than the signs of the passage of time and the fragility of nature.

"This new piece from Albarn, a frequent visitor to Iceland for almost three decades, will see the musician perform this new, very personal piece with an ensemble of orchestra instrumentation, electronics, vocals and piano. The title is taken from a John Clare poem entitled Love and Memory."

Albarn will take the new project on the road in May. The run includes a performance at London's Barbican Centre, where he'll collaborate with conductor André de Ridder.⁣ There's also stops planned in Dublin, Brussels, Budapest, Eindhoven, Paris, Lyon, Nantes and Luxembourg. Tickets go on general sale at 10am local time on October 4.
