The Last Perfect Day on Earth is a stark statement on the perilous state of our planet as we approach the crucial COP26 talks in Crawford Mack’s home town of Glasgow. It is a subject that both engages and enrages the songwriter in equal measure given, as he notes, the finality of the situation and the need for immediate action:

“Nothing else will matter if we don’t address the climate emergency. All those massive differences that we feel we have in society pale into nothing in the face of this and so many of them are encapsulated by it. A world that is unfair is a world in which the Global South suffers for the emissions of the Global North, in which the poorest suffer the worst effects of climate breakdown. Solve the climate crisis and you solve so much more at the same time.”

The song was developed over a period in which the reality of climate breakdown became inescapable. Floods across Europe and Asia, record temperatures and wildfires in North America, stark warnings of collapsing ice-sheets, vanishing glaciers and biodiversity loss were the other narrative of 2021, more destructive and more complex to solve than another emergency that gripped the planet and its attention.
