Since being hinted at roughly a year and a half ago, it’s been virtual radio silence about the details of The National curated Grateful Dead charity covers album. While we await for more news on this project, there have been a handful of new indie-Dead covers since the project was first hinted at, including The War on Drugs covering Touch Of Grey on their tour last fall, and Jonathan Wilson including a sublime cover of Mission In The Rain on his recent Daytrotter session.
The latest artist to throw their hat into the proverbial ring of acts that could be contributing to this project is Norah Jones. The lovely singer-songwriter has been including a sultry, country-inflected take on the Hunter/Garcia tune It Must Have Been The Roses on her current summer tour. Let’s check out this version from her recent stop at the Wolf Trap in Vienna, Virginia…
