Day of the Dead release day is finally here! I’m so excited to share this years in the making epic 59 song album in its entirety. The album is a tribute to one of the most influential bands in my life, the Grateful Dead. It was so much fun to curate and produce the album with my brother Aaron Dessner, and to work with so many of our talented friends. All profits will go to The Red Hot Organization’s mission to fight AIDS/HIV and related health issues around the world. The album is out digitally and on CD today and the 10 LP boxset will be released Friday, September 9th. Pre-orders for the boxset will be available through the 4AD store beginning June 9th.
Thank you to all the amazing artists involved! You can read more about the project here.
