The Grateful Dead’s “Ripple” became a kind of cosmic spiritual after its debut 50 years ago. Since then, the universal appeal of Robert Hunter’s serene prose and the band’s heartfelt performance have made the song a popular choice at everything from weddings to funerals. As relevant now as ever before, the enduring optimism of “Ripple” is a welcome reminder of better days ahead, when songs will, once again, fill the air. Watch the official music video below:
Grateful Dead say: “Reach out your hand if your cup be empty
If your cup is full may it be again“
“We’re taking 2020 home and offering up new hope for 2021 with the video premiere of “Ripple.” Beautifully animated by Actuality Films, the video brings a Tarot card reading to life as it tells the story of The Fool crossing paths with The Muse, The Magician and The Devil. Can you spot the myriad of Easter eggs drawn from Grateful Dead lyrics and lore?“
The “American Beauty 50th Anniversary Edition” is available now. The 3xCD features the original album with newly remastered audio plus one of the most requested archival recordings in the Dead’s vault – the unreleased concert recorded on February 18, 1971 at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY.
