Neko Case, Nick Cave Cover the Zombies For 'True Blood' Season Premiere

Nick Cave and Neko Case have recorded a cover of the Zombie's "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 at the Musexpo in Hollywood. The Cage and Case tracks 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 and Lucinda Williams and C.C. Adcock and Jace Everett.

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