Iggy Pop and Best Coast's 'True Blood' track is unveiled
The song which Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino and Iggy Pop have teamed up on for TV show True Blood has debuted online.

Visit SoundCloud to listen to the song, which is called 'Let's Boot and Rally', and will appear in the next True Blood episode, which airs in the US on July 8.

Of the collaboration Iggy Pop has said: "I've always liked to bite. I guess this makes me a singing vampire, does this mean I have a licence to suck? Hi Bethany..."

The track was written by the show's music supervisor Gary Calamar alongside James Combs. Of Iggy Pop's involvement, Calamar – via KCRW - said: "Iggy Pop, or should I say Iggy's people, had reached out to me saying he was a True Blood fan and if any opportunities come up, to please keep Iggy in mind. What? Music to my ears. We sent Iggy the demo of 'LB&R'. He loved it and said sign me up."

Last year Nick Cave and Neko Case also duetted for 'True Blood', recording a version of The Zombies' classic track 'She's Not There'.
