Damon Albarn has uploaded a trailer for what appears to be a concert film based around his upcoming second solo album The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows.
Earlier today (5 July) Albarn uploaded a teaser trailer for what looks like a concert film relating to his upcoming second solo album, after announcing it with the title-track "The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows" last month.
The trailer shows a setlist that features the title-track, and other songs from the album including "The Cormorant", "The Tower Of Montevideo", "Royal Morning Blue", "Darkness To Light", "Polaris" and "Particles", and is launching tomorrow (6 July).
Albarn originally planned to tour the project, which is inspired by the landscapes of Iceland, in May 2020 with an ensemble of orchestra instrumentation, electronics, vocals, and piano, but then the pandemic hit and he had to postpone the live dates. Albarn did perform some of the pieces in May last year as part of Boiler Room's Streaming from Isolation series, but it's now getting an official release.
The title for his new album, which will follow 2014's Everyday Robots, was inspired by John Clare's poem Love and Memory.
