"‘The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows’ was originally intended as an orchestral piece inspired by the landscapes of Iceland. This last year has seen Albarn return to the music in lockdown and develop the work to 11 tracks which further explore themes of fragility, loss, emergence and rebirth. The result is a panoramic collection of songs with Albarn as storyteller. The album title is taken from a John Clare poem Love and Memory. The deluxe version of the album takes the form of a casebound book with additional photography, original scanned lyrics and artwork from Damon, alongside a white vinyl version of the album and a bonus 7” featuring an exclusive song from the recording sessions, plus a high quality digital download"
