önüllerimize taht kuran topluluklardan The National, bir süredir etrafta dolanan dedikoduları doğrulayarak, Grateful Dead için çıkaracakları “Day of the Dead” adlı saygı albümü konusunda bu hafta yepyeni detaylar paylaştı. Aralarında Avustralya’nın gururu Courtney Barnett, Mumford and Sons ve Arcade Fire üyelerinin de yer aldığı albüm kadrosu epey heyecan verici!

Uzun jam session’lar içeren, havası dumanlı konserleriyle ünlü Grateful Dead‘in bu özelliğine de değinir nitelikteki albüm, Thunder, Lightning ve Sunshine adlı toplam 59 şarkılık üç bölümden oluşacak ve dolayısıyla sürenin 6 saatin üstünde olması bekleniyor. 20 Mayıs’ta 4AD etiketiyle yayınlanacak albümün gelirleri, HIV/AIDS yararına çalışan dernek Red Hot‘a bağışlanacak. Prodüktör koltuğunda ise Aaron Dessner, Bryce Desnner ve Josh Kaufman üçlüsü var.

Albümde defansa gelen isimlere baktığımızdaysa Wilco, the Flaming Lips, Courtney Barnett, Anohni, the War on Drugs, Bill Callahan, the Walkmen, Kurt Vile ve J Mascis, Jenny Lewis, TV on the Radio’dan Tunde Adebimpe, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Real Estate, Perfume Genius ve Sharon Van Etten, Fucked Up, My Morning Jacket’dan Jim James, Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Grizzly Bear üyeleri, Stephen Malkmus, Angel Olsen, Sonic Youth’dan Lee Ranaldo, ve Arcade Fire’dan Richard Reed Parry’den oluşan dopdolu ve merak uyandırıcı işbirliklerine içeren bir liste söz konusu.

Hepsi ve daha fazlası için grubun esas adamı Matt Berninger’e bağlanıyoruz:
