Neko Case and Nick Cave, two of the most charismatic and distinctive singers in rock, teamed up to record a groovy, sultry cover of the Zombies‘ tune “She’s Not There” for True Blood. The song played over the end credits of the season premiere – also titled “She’s Not There” – in which telepathic waitress/vampire magnet Sookie Stackhouse returned from a year-long visit with the faeries. Though it’s great to hear Case and Cave side by side on the same track, it’s even better that their collaboration – which you can stream now – is so perfectly attuned to the campy, sexy spirit of the show.
