Damon Albarn Announces Intimate Solo Concert at Globe Theater E! News UK

Damon Albarn performs an intimate solo concert at the Globe Theater in London.

The Blur and Gorillaz star will perform tracks from his upcoming album ‘The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows’ during the one-off concert at Shakespeare’s Globe on September 20.

As well as his live band, the 53-year-old Britpop legend will be joined on stage by a string quartet.

In June, Damon signed a new recording contract with Transgressive Records for his second solo album.

Seven years have passed since the 2014 Mercury Prize-nominated ‘Song 2’ hitmaker’s last solo effort, ‘Everyday Robots’, narrowly missed out on number 1 on the official UK chart.

However, the prolific star has collaborated on a number of releases since with her Africa Express project, most recently the 2019 ‘Egoli’ collection.

As well as his supergroup The Good, the Bad & the Queen’s 2018’s ‘Merrie Land’ and Gorillaz’ 2020 LP ‘Song Machine, Season One: Strange Timez’.

Also, last month, Gorillaz returned with the surprise new EP “Meanwhile.”

Damon built a studio in a barn when lockdown began and has been busy writing new material ever since.

Speaking recently about his makeshift studio, he shared, “It was enough to keep working.”

“The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows” is out on the independent label on November 12.
