Albarn has been a frequent visitor to Iceland for almost three decades and has in this time found musical inspiration in its nature and landscapes. This new work – inspired by Albarn’s long-time love for Iceland – will see the musician perform this very personal piece with an ensemble and specially commissioned visuals.
The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows was written and composed entirely in Iceland. The title is taken from a John Clare poem entitled Love and Memory.
If you're curious about what that sounds like, you can hear Damon Albarn play in this new clip courtesy of online media Boiler Room.
’The Nearer the Fountain, More Pure the Stream Flows’ is one of many activities that will mark the 50th edition of Roskilde Festival in a wide variety of ways – and it's hard to think of an artist more obvious to take part in the celebration than Damon Albarn.
Damon Albarn is a singer, songwriter, producer and composer whose eclectic musical style and observational lyrics have made him one of the UK’s most influential and consistently interesting musicians.
He has been a part of Roskilde Festival since 1992 when Blur first played at the festival. Since then, he has been on the Roskilde poster eight times – both as a solo artist and with Blur, Gorillaz, Africa Express and The Orchestra of Syrian Musicians, as well as a guest appearance with Atomic Bomb! Band in 2014.
