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 on 12th November 2021.

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

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.”

Alongside a digital release, there will be limited edition white vinyl format,
plus CD and cassette. There will also be a deluxe version of the album,
taking the form of a casebound book with additional photography, original
scanned lyrics and artwork from Damon, alongside a white vinyl version of
the album, a high quality digital file and a bonus 7” featuring an exclusive
song from the recording sessions.
