The National anuncian un impresionante disco homenaje a Grateful Dead

Impresionante por el tamaño: el proyecto constará de hasta 59 versiones de temas de Grateful Dead. E impresionante por la lista de colaboradores que participarán en él: Wilco, the Flaming Lips, Courtney Barnett, Anohni, The War on Drugs, Bruce Hornsby, Justin Vernon, Megafaun, Bill Callahan, The Walkmen, Kurt Vile con J Mascis, Jenny Lewis, Tunde Adebimpe (de TV on the Radio), Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Real Estate, Perfume Genius con Sharon Van Etten, Fucked Up, Jim James (de My Morning Jacket), Bonnie “Prince” Billy, miembros de Grizzly Bear, Phosphorescent, Terry Riley, Stephen Malkmus, Lucinda Williams, Angel Olsen, Lee Ranaldo, Ira Kaplan (Yo La Tengo), Cass McCombs, Richard Reed Parry (de Arcade Fire), Garth Hudson (de The Band) o Caroline Shaw, además de los propios The National. ¡Casi nada!

El disco tributo, que de hecho tendrá el formato físico de una caja de 5 cds, llevará por título Day of the Dead y se publicará el próximo 20 de mayo con la portada que encabeza esta noticia. Ha sido comisariado y producido por los hermanos Dessner y Josh Kaufman y los beneficios irán destinados a la organización Red Hot Organization, que ha estado detrás de otros discos como Dark Was The Night. Este es el (impresionante) tracklist completo que tendrá el formato digital.
