Damon Albarn shares new single Particles

Today sees the release of Particles, the third track from Damon Albarn’s second solo album The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows, out 12th November on Transgressive Records. Listen here, and watch the stunning live version below.

Particles is the uplifting final track on the album and originated in a chance conversation between Albarn and a fellow passenger on a plane bound for Reykjavik, one which covered the disruption of the pandemic and the acknowledgement that disruption is impossible to maintain as peace always prevails. The song follows the recent release of the album’s tone-setting title track, plus its euphoric follow-up Polaris.

To accompany the song’s release, the second in a series of special, cinematic films entitled Sublime Boulevards - Performance Films is available today on YouTube. Watch here.

Following two acclaimed festival shows in Manchester and Edinburgh this summer, as well as a special guest appearance at Latitude, Albarn will take the stage this weekend as a special guest headliner at the sold out End of the Road Festival. Full tour itinerary below.
