A duet recorded by Neko Case and Nick Cave is the first taste that fans will get from the Trueblood Vol 3 soundtrack.
Case and Cave have recorded a new version of The Zombies classic Shes Not There which was released yesterday at all digital retailers to coincide with the new season launch. Here is the official word on the soundtrack:
WaterTower Music has announced the upcoming release of Trueblood Music From The Hbo Original Series Volume 3 due in stores and online this fall. The follow up to the first two Grammy nominated soundtracks will consist of new songs from the upcoming forth season of the acclaimed HBO drama as well as music from the shows wildly successful 3rd season.
Music is an essential element in developing the tone and atmosphere on the hit television series. The sexy, supernatural world of Bon Temps comes to pulsating life through the edgy songs and season three is no exception.
"I am so excited about Neko and Nick's cover of She's Not There," says True Blood music supervisor and soundtrack producer Gary Calamar. I would have been thrilled to have either Neko Case or Nick Cave individually work with us this season, but to have a collaboration like this blows me away. Two of my favorite artists whose music is perfect a fit with the atmospheric and soulful Louisiana settings of True Blood. This is a fantastic way to musically kick off the new season!
Washington-bred Neko Cases mix of country, gospel, torch, and pop, and her five full-length solo albums have won her much critical acclaim, countless devotees and two Grammy nominations. Internationally renowned as a singer, songwriter, performer, script writer and novelist, Nick Caves career spans from the 80s Australian postβpunk group The Birthday Party, to legendary band Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds to the irrepressible raucous and raw Grinderman.
Information on the additional tracks included in TRUEBLOOD MUSIC FROM THE HBO ORIGINAL SERIES VOLUME 3 will be released later this summer.
