It's inspired by Iceland...

Damon Albarn has outlined his project 'The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows'.

The songwriter is set to play a sold out show at London's Barbican on May 26th, with the London artist now confirming 15 more live dates.

New project 'The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows' is at the centre of this, and it's inspired by the landscape and culture of Iceland.

Damon Albarn has long been entranced by the country, with the new project being written and composed entirely in Iceland.

The title is taken from a John Clare poem entitled Love and Memor, with Damon Albarn set to take the project to Iceland on June 12th for a special concert in Reykjavik’s Harpa.

Closer to come, Damon Albarn will perform 'The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows' at the London Palladium on June 3rd.

Tickets for this show go on sale from February 20th at 10am.
