BLUE RAINCOAT FOR "PINK MOON" MAN
1/19/21

Nick Drake’s entire catalog of songs have a new home at Blue Raincoat Music Publishing in conjunction with Reservoir.

The global publishing deal with the Drake estate of the songs on the singer-songwriter’s three albums released on Island RecordsFive Leaves Left, Bryter Later and Pink Moon. 

Drake died in 1974 at the age of 26, but, during his brief career, wrote a collection of songs that regularly appear in best ever and greatest of all time lists and have inspired a host of artists. Widespread recognition and success only arrived posthumously: The use of “Pink Moon” in a Volkswagen TV advert in the U.S. triggered interest that grew steadily around the world and resulted in Drake's albums entering the sales charts. 

“Nick’s career has so often swum against the tide,” Cally Callomon, manager of Bryter Music, the Estate Of Nick Drake, said. “Working with Nick's songs has always demanded and rewarded close attention and focus so it was a relief to find that there are still a clutch of song publishers who have the time and dedication to concentrate on the subtleties and details that these songs deserve. Blue Raincoat is one such, along with their American partners, Reservoir.

“The fact that the company also owns the newly reformed Chrysalis is an added bonus. Chrysalis were once bed partners with Island Records and so this move will be like a return to the fold.”

Blue Raincoat Music CEO Jeremy Lascelles added: “It is no mean feat to have written songs that are era-defining but remain utterly timeless, but that is what Nick has left behind for us all. His body of work has been so skillfully and lovingly curated by Cally and [his sister] Gabrielle over the years.”
