Damon Albarn will livestream his solo show at the Globe Theatre in London later this month.

The sold-out gig will see the Blur frontman, his live band and a string quartet performing songs from Albarn’s forthcoming new album ‘The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows’, which is out on November 12 via Transgressive Records.

“I love playing in the round and at the Globe you can see the moon too, marvellous,” Albarn said in a statement about the upcoming show.

Speaking in an interview last month, Albarn reflected on missed opportunities to collaborate with the likes of Dr. Dre, Prince and Kendrick Lamar.

He previously spoke in 2018 about turning down an offer to play with Prince, saying “it’s one of those ‘could’ve-beens’. I’ve got a few of those”.
