Listen to a Song Iggy Pop and Best Coast Recorded for ‘True Blood’

From Neko Case and Nick Cave to BeckTrue Blood is out to prove that recording artists of all kinds love getting a check in the mail. In the show’s latest promotional effort they’ve recruited Iggy Pop and Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino to sing “Let’s Boot & Rally,” a track written by KCRW DJ Gary Calamar, who’s also a music supervisor on the show. I haven’t seen any of True Blood this season, but I’ll take a stab what’s happening nonetheless; Sookie is in danger, sticking her  fairy nose in where it doesn’t belong, all while being tempted by sexy werewolf Alcide and subtly contested over by sexy Vampire Bill and sexier Vampire Eric. Lafayette and Jason are sassy and affably moronic, respectively, in the show’s peripheral storylines. Sam is troubled. Well, if that’s what’s going on then that’s what Iggy Pop and Bethany Cosentino’s track will accompany when it plays this Sunday on HBO. Listen to the song at KCRW.
