Nick Cave and Neko Case have recorded a cover of the Zombies' "She's Not There" for the debut episode of season four of "True Blood."

Cave and Case, who shared concert bills about a decade ago, were brought together for the season premiere, which is titled "She's Not There." The song closes the episode.

"You always want to serve the show, but in the back of my mind I'm always thinking about the soundtrack," "True Blood" music supervisor Gary Calamar said Wednesday (May 4) at the Musexpo in Hollywood. The Cage and Case track replaces Santana's cover of the tune, which was requested in the script. "The key to a good soundtrack is having fresh recordings."

Both of the two soundtracks to "True Blood" were nominated for Grammys. The second edition featured several unique pairings, among them Elvis Costello with Lucinda Williams and C.C. Adcock with Jace Everett.

Season four of "True Blood" will premiere June 26.
