Best Coast and Iggy Pop join forces for ‘True Blood’ soundtrack

Bethany Cosentino and The Stooges' man have recorded a duet called 'Let's Boot and Rally'

Best Coast‘s Bethany Cosentino and Iggy Pop have teamed up to record a song for the TV show True Blood.

The pair have apparently recorded a track called ‘Let’s Boot and Rally’, which will appear in the episode which airs in the US on July 8. Pitchfork reports that the song will receive its radio debut a few days before the television broadcast date, on July 5.

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…”

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

Meanwhile, in other Iggy Pop news, Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins has signed on to play The Stooges’ frontman in CBGB, a new film about the legendary New York venue.

The movie will be directed by Randal Miller – who has co-written the script with Jody Savin – and is set to start shooting in Savannah, Georgia, before moving to New York. The pair are also currently putting together a biopic about Dennis Wilson, the late solo musician and drummer with The Beach Boys.
