True Blood Season 4 Starts Sunday: Zombies, Vampires, and Nick Cave, Oh My!

It has just been announced via Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds' official Facebook page, that the gloomy Grinderman guitarist himself has collaborated with Neko Case on a cover of The Zombies' song "She's Not There." The song will be featured in the debut episode of the fourth season of HBO's "True Blood," which airs this Sunday, June 26.
