Neko Case & Nick Cave Duet Featured In True Blood Season Premiere

WaterTower Music has announced the upcoming release of TRUE BLOOD - 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 show's 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. An exceptional duet recorded by Neko Case and Nick Cave will be the first track from the collection to make its debut. Case and Cave have recorded a new version of The Zombies' classic "She's Not There" which will be available at all digital retailers on June 26, after the premiere episode.

"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 Case's 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 Cave's career spans from the 80s Australian post‑punk 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 TRUE BLOOD - MUSIC FROM THE HBO ORIGINAL SERIES - VOLUME 3 will be released later this summer.

Centered in the fictional town of Bon Temps, the Emmy® and Golden Globe®-winning True Blood series follows the romance between waitress Sookie Stackhouse (played by Anna Paquin), who can read minds, and 173-year-old vampire Bill Compton (played by Stephen Moyer). Alan Ball (creator of the Emmy®-winning HBO series Six Feet Under) is creator and executive producer the show, which is based on the best-selling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.

Gary Calamar serves as music supervisor and soundtrack producer for of TRUE BLOOD - MUSIC FROM THE HBO ORIGINAL SERIES - VOLUME 3
