Unknown Mortal Orchestra covered Grateful Dead’s “Shakedown Street” on the recent Day of the Dead compilation, the new Grateful Dead covers box set that features 59 tracks and six hours of music (it’s out now on 4AD). The compilation was spearheaded by The National’s Aaron and Bryce Dessner, with profits going to the HIV/AIDS charity Red Hot. Last night the New Zealand band stopped by Conan to perform the cover. Watch below (you can also listen to the studio version of the cover below).

The band’s last album was 2015’s excellent Multi-Love (out now via Jagjaguwar). The band also recently shared the new song “First World Problem.”

Read our 2015 interview with Unknown Mortal Orchestra about Multi-Love and read our review of the album.
