Next month The National-currated Grateful Dead tribute compilation Day of the Dead will be released. So far they've shared several songs featured on the compilation. Today they continued the trend, sharing their their powerful rendition of nearly 17 minute epic "Terrapin Station." The earth-shaking jam features a multitude of musicians, including Grizzly Bear's Daniel Rossen and Christopher Bear, Aaron and Bruce Dessner of The National, Josh Kaufman, Conrad Doucette, Sō Percussion, and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus. The Grateful Dead's "Terrapin Station," was the first time the band unveiled a more symphonic and progressive sound. The song is the most musically elaborate recording on the record, featuring nearly 50 musicians.
