Nick Drake’s 1972 album Pink Moon is 28 minutes of the most beautifully desolate music you will ever hear - it was his last release before he died of a drugs overdose two years later at the age of 26. Its last track is From the Morning, which contains the lines, ‘now we rise and we are everywhere’, which now seems remarkably and scarily prescient. These are the lines that are also on Drake’s gravestone.
In a seemingly unrelated development, From the Morning is the incidental music to the new Vicks cough syrup advert.
Run for your lives. It’s the end of civilisation as we know it.
