BPM has reported that Bethany Cosentino, from charming californian act Best Coast, and the incomparable Iggy Pop have come together to collaborate on an original piece for the popular vampire program True Blood.
There are few details about the new track other then its title Let’s Boot and Rally and that it will feature on the True Blood episode that airs July 8, 2012. The Cosentino/Pop collaboration will, however, first debut on free internet public radio station KCRW on July 5 (assumingly US dates).
Both Iggy and Beth were quoted in a press release about the chance to work together and contribute a tune to True Blood:
“I’ve always liked to bite. I guess this makes me a singing vampire, does this mean I have a license to suck? Hi Bethany…” – Iggy Pop.
“What an honor to get to sing with a legend, and for such a fantastic show. What’s up Iggy!” – Bethany Cosentino.
Such an exciting collaboration should come as little surprise considering True Blood boasts Gary Calamar as its music supervisor. Occasional DJ and music supervisor for other hit shows such as Entourage and Dexter, Calamar recently put together an entertaining list of songs while ‘Taking 5’ with triple j’s Zan Rowe.
