Albarn originally announced the project in October 2019, revealing that he'll be touring the project around Europe.

Today (17 February), Albarn has announced a second London show for his The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows project, at London Palladium on 3 June.

The new project is inspired by the landscapes of Iceland, and will see Albarn perform with an ensemble of orchestra instrumentation, electronics, vocals, and piano.

The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows title is inspired by John Clare's poem Love and Memory.

A synopsis for Albarn's new project 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."

Damon Albarn's The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows will be premiered on tour in May. Find the full list of tour dates.
