Your Winter Nights Companion – Musical Centipede DAMON ALBARN Released His New Solo LP

14 November 2021

Artist: DAMON ALBARN
The musical centipede of Blur, Gorillaz, The Good The Bad
and The Queen,
solo and songwriter for other artists

New album: ‘THE NEARER THE FOUNTAIN, MORE PURE THE STREAM FLOWS’,
Released: 12 November 2021 via Transgressive Records.

The new record is influenced by an orchestral project and live experience back
in 2019, with the landscapes of Iceland as an inspiration, 11 tracks “exploring themes
of fragility, loss, emergence and rebirth”.

The title is taken from a poem by English poet John Clare.

NME says: “The Blur legend — and his snazzy new mullet — takes us on a spectral tour
of far-flung lands… Considering it was made during a time when we couldn’t go anywhere,
this album is at worst a fittingly scenic trip through the places that inspired it, and at best
a fresh new sonic chapter for Albarn and a wonderful way for you to leave all the nonsense behind; blissfully reminded that there’s a beautiful world out there. Then be happy for the
rest of the day, safe in the knowledge there will always be a bit of your heart devoted to it.”

Full review here. Score: 4/5.

Turn Up The Volume: This album comes at the right time
to be your companion during the coming dark winter nights.
