True Blood Soundtrack Volume 4

TB

True Blood: Music From The HBO Original Series Volume 4 of the acclaimed HBO® original series True Blood is available to all of its fang-loving fans now with never before released tracks from noted artists Alabama Shakes, Bosco Delrey, My Morning Jacket, Mobley, Deap Vally and Los Lobos, as well as the rare, out of print song “Your Face Can Tell The Future” by The Flaming Lips.

Once again produced by the show’s music supervisor Gary Calamar, True Blood: Music From The HBO Original Series Volume 4 continues the True Blood soundtrack tradition of uniting legendary rock hall of famers with indie darlings such as Iggy Pop with Bethany Cosentino for the song “Let’s Boot and Rally” (digital release only) and Eric Burdon with Jenny Lewis for a re-recording of E Records and ABKCO Records’ “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood.”

For the first time ever the soundtrack will also be available on vinyl, to be released mid-June.

True Blood is centered in the fictional town of Bon Temps, Louisiana and 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. The highly anticipated sixth season premiere debuts on June 16th and runs through August.
