For 'True Blood' soundtrack

An angelic summery voice coupled with heavily damaged punk vocals? It has to work. Iggy Pop and Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino team up for a new song called ‘Let’s Boot and Rally’.

The track, which they have recorded for hit HBO vampire drama True Blood, will be premiered July 5th on American radio station KCRW and will appear on the show’s July 8th episode. (via Pitchfork)

The show has featured musical collaborations before with the likes of Nick Cave and Neko, in which they covered The Zombies’ classic ‘She’s Not There’. The series is also famous for its choice of songs, especially in the end credits, which have been compiled into soundtracks featuring Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Gil Scott-Heron and many more.

In a press release detailing the track, Iggy Pop says: “I’ve always liked to bite. I guess this makes me a signing vampire, does this mean I have a license to suck? Hi Bethany...”

Bethany comments: “What an honor to get to sing with a legend, and for such a fantastic show. What’s up Iggy!”

'Let's Boot and Rally' will be featured in the July 8th episode of 'True Blood'. The track does not currently have a release date.
