Hear War On Drugs, The National, Courtney Barnett And More Cover Grateful Dead From Upcoming Compilation

Last week we got excited when news rolled out that a new Grateful Dead compilation was created and curated by brothers Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National. Coming on May 20th via 4AD, Day of the Dead features over 60 artists from varied musical backgrounds, 59 tracks and is almost 6 hours long. What makes the compilation stand out is the artists, most of whom come from the indie rock and Americana world. You can check out a full track listing and see all of the artists involved HERE.

Today we are getting an early dose of the Day of the Dead with a handful of covers that have been released. Check them out:
