Ανακοινώθηκε το tribute στους Grateful Dead από τους National

Ήταν δύο χρόνια πριν, όταν συναντήσαμε στα παρασκήνια του Best Kept Secret festival τον Damian Abraham των Fucked Up. Μία συνάντηση που κράτησε κάποιες ώρες και εξελίχθηκε σε συζήτηση για τη μουσική, τη συλλογή βινυλίων μας κτλ με τη συνοδεία ενός σημανικού αριθμού από μπίρες. Όταν η κουβέντα έφτασε στους Grateful Dead, ο Abraham μας είπε εμπιστευτικά οτι οι National έχουν ξεκινήσει ένα τεράστιο project, tribute στην θρυλική αυτή μπάντα. Έχουν ήδη συμφωνήσει με πολλούς άλλους καλλιτέχνες, με τους Fucked Up να έχουν ήδη από τότε ηχογραφήσει το μέρος τους.

Λίγες μέρες πριν λοιπόν ανακοινώθηκε επίσημα η κυκλοφορία του Day Of The Dead στις 20 Μαίου από την 4AD. Ίσως το πιο φιλόδοξο tribute project που έχει γίνει ποτέ! Οργανωμένο από τους Aaron και Bryce Dessner, το τελικό αποτέλεσμα περιλαμβάνει 6 ώρες μουσικής, σε 5 cd ή σε vinyl box set. Τα έσοδα θα διατεθούν στο Red Hot Organization για τη δράση τους στην καταπολέμηση του H.I.V. και άλλων ασθενειών.

Όσον αφορά τους συμμετέχοντες...εδώ αρχίζει το πάρτι!

Βαθιά ανάσα και:

Justin Vernon, War On Drugs, Flaming Lips, Mumford & Sons, Phosphorescent, Kurt Vile, Bonnie Prince Billy, Sharon Van Etten, Courtney Barnett, Wilco, Charles Bradley, Lee Ranaldo, Xylouris White (ναι!), The Walkmen, Real Estate, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Stephen Malkmus, Fucked Up και πάρα πολλοί ακόμα!

We are excited to announce that Day of the Dead, our years in the making celebration of the Grateful Dead’s music, will be released by 4AD on May 20th, 2016. Curated by Aaron and Bryce, Day of the Dead is a compilation of Grateful Dead covers featuring over 60 artists, 59 tracks and lasting almost 6 hours. The album will be released digitally, on a 5 x CD and as a limited edition vinyl boxed set, with all profits going to the Red Hot Organization’s mission to fight AIDS/HIV and related health issues around the world.

The songwriting of the Dead has always inspired us and this record is meant to celebrate their legacy. Growing up, the Grateful Dead was the first music that Aaron and Bryce bonded over. Their first-ever jam session was with Bryan, playing the Dead’s “Eyes of the World” in Bryan’s parent's attic in Ohio. Now, so many years later, Aaron, Bryce, Scott and Bryan make up part of the house band featured on many of the record’s songs. Matt has joined his bandmates to interpret "Peggy-O," "Morning Dew" and "I Know You Rider."

We are also excited that a Day of the Dead live performance will take place this summer at Eaux Claires Festival (August 12-13), featuring some of the musicians who appear on the record including Bruce Hornsby, Jenny Lewis, Justin Vernon, Lucius, Matthew Houck, The National, Richard Reed Perry, Ruban Nielson, Sam Amidon and Will Oldham.

Working with such a diverse group of talented musicians and friends on this project was so much fun and we can’t wait to share the music with you. In the meantime, 4AD has put together a Spotify playlist matching the Day of the Dead tracklist which you can listen to here. The full Day of the Dead tracklist is below.
