Songs on artist’s last albums that are about the band breaking up
I guess the most famous one would be

The Beatles - Let It Be (no need for a link, I’m sure you already are familiar with it)

Two others that come to mind are -

ABBA - When All Is Said And Done

This is a pretty sad song since it could be interpreted to be about both the end of their marriages and the end of ABBA as a band. I really like the tune to this song, even though it is melancholy

ELO - Getting to the Point
This probably didn’t get much air play, but it is a solid tune. The lyrics are about a separation. This song is also unique for having a saxophone solo, which is pretty un ELO like.

Any others to add?

That came off of One of These Nights in 1975. They broke up in 80. I think it might have more to do with addiction or relationships

How Long by Ace....it's about the bassist possibly leaving the band and the lead singer finding out about it.

This isn't the last album they made (despite the release order, the last album they made was Abbey Road - if any song was about the band breaking up, it's The End) and the song isn't about the band breaking up. It's literally about a dream Paul had about his deceased mother Mary (died when he was 14, IIRC).

There are some pretty somber songs on Uncle Tupelo's Anodyne.

While it's not their final album and the band didn't break-up proper, I've always viewed Metallica's "All Within My Hands," the closing track on the St. Anger album, as the eulogy of the Jason Newsted-era "Black Album Band."

Yeah, in hindsight, all of Jay's songs clearly demonstrate that the end was nigh.

How about an artist's last album because they know they're dying? Hard to beat Warren Zevon's Keep Me In Your Heart.

Yeah, "The End" has the section where John, Paul, and George all run 2 bar guitar solos plus a rare Ringo drum solo and calls back to the love songs of their early years.

If you have to pick a song off Let It Be to fit, it's easily "Two of Us" which Paul steadfastly denied was about himself and John but I think most people assume that it is anyway.

Not really on topic but it makes me think of the last song recorded by Nirvana before Kurt killed himself. Listening to the lyrics it's pretty obvious what was about to happen

You Know You're Right
