"The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows", the new studio album from Damon Albarn, will be released by new label home Transgressive Records. "The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows" was originally intended as an orchestral piece inspired by the landscapes of Iceland.

This last year has seen Albarn return to the music in lockdown 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.

Albarn says “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.”

The album title is taken from a John Clare poem Love and Memory.
