Damon Albarn performs an intimate solo concert at the Globe Theater in London.
The Blur and Gorillaz star will perform tracks from his upcoming LP “The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows” during the one-off concert at Shakespeare’s Globe on September 20th.
In addition to his live band, the 53-year-old Britpop legend will be joined on stage by a string quartet.
In June, Damon signed a new contract with Transgressive Records for his second solo album.
It’s been seven years since the last solo effort of ‘Song 2’ hitmaker, ‘Everyday Robots’, a Mercury Prize nominee in 2014, who narrowly missed out on first place in the official UK rankings.
However, the prolific star has collaborated on a number of releases since with his Africa Express project, most recently the 2019 “Egoli” collection.
As well as his supergroup The Good, the Bad & the Queen’s 2018 ‘Merrie Land’ and Gorillaz’s LP 2020 ‘Song Machine, Season One: Strange Timez’.
Additionally, last month Gorillaz returned with the new surprise EP “Meanwhile”.
Damon built a studio in a barn as soon as the lockdown hit and he’s been busy writing new songs ever since.
Speaking about his makeshift studio recently, he shared, “It was enough to keep working.”
“The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows” will be released via the independent label on November 12th.
