Nick Cave and Neko Case have collaborated on a cover of The Zombies' classic 'She's Not There' for vampire drama True Blood.

The duet has been recorded for the first episode of the forthcoming series of the popular US show. The new version of the song will close the episode, which shares its name with the 1964 song. The show will kick off the fourth season of the series in the US on June 26, reports Billboard.

The programme's music supervisor, Gary Calamar, spoke about the collaboration yesterday (May 4) at the Musexpo conference in Los Angeles. "You always want to serve the show, but in the back of my mind I'm always thinking about the soundtrack," he said, adding that the script asked for Santana's version of the song to be used, which he overruled in favour of the Cave and Case version. "The key to a good soundtrack is having fresh recordings."
