Damon Albarn on vibrations, childhood pictures, & what’s next for Gorillaz

Damon Albarn catches up with Kyle Meredith to talk about his new solo album, The Nearer The Fountain More Pure The Stream Flows, the original concept of writing and recording it in Iceland, and the vibrations that attract his various projects around the world.
