It’s Damon Albarn’s successor to 2014’s solo debut Everyday Robots.

Damon Albarn is leading the UK Record Store Chart with his new solo album The Nearer The Fountain, More Pure The Stream Flows.

Idles are next up with their essential fourth studio record Crawler, while more stand-out new releases from Courtney Barnett and W. H. Lung are also close behind.
