On May 20th, The National's will be dropping their fittingly titled album Day of the Dead
, a carefully orchestrated tribute album comprised of 69-tracks covered by over 60 different artists, followed closely by a yet to be released six-hour box set.
In anticipation of its release, the band stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to perform "Morning Dew", a track from the Grateful Dead's 1967, self-titled, debut album.
All profits go to the Red Hot Organization's
mission to fight AIDS HIV and related health issues around the world.
