Damon Albarn Announces New Project To Be Performed On 2020 Tour | Music News


Damon Albarn has just revealed some details about what will be performed at his upcoming 2020 tour, starting in May. Indeed, the British singer, songwriter and producer will bring his new project The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows to the stage next year. He has not published any of the songs yet, but talked about what inspired his new record the most.


As he said, his work has been inspired by the landscapes of Iceland, to which he is a frequent visitor. As a synopsis read: “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.


Moreover, the title of his new project is taken by another source of inspiration, the John Clare poem entitled Love and Memory. In addition to this, Albarn will utilise a full ensemble and commissioned visuals to accompany his performances. All these features contribute to making the artist’s new project strictly personal and different from the what is more common to see.


Furthermore, this has been an unexpected announcement, right after Albarn revealed the end of his latest project, The Good, The Bad & The Queen earlier this summer. Albarn will surprise his spectators once again, the next time he is on stage.
