Earlier this summer Unknown Mortal Orchestra shared a dance-filled video for their addictive track “First World Problem,” & now they’ve released a video for their contribution to Day Of The Dead, The National’s triple-disc Grateful Dead tribute compilation. Unknown Mortal Orchestra have dropped a video for “Shakedown Street,” their cover of the Grateful Dead classic. Directed by The Business Company, the video is a trippy hodgepodge of knights, face smashing & weird business men.
Watch Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s video for “Shakedown Street” above.
Day Of The Dead is out now on 4AD. Grab a physical copy of the 5-disc set here or download a digital copy of the compilation here. If you’re a big Dead Head, the compilation will also be released on vinyl as a limited 10xLP boxed set September 9th, pre-order it here.
