MUSIC: Preview the True Blood Season Finale Title Song

The True Blood season finale is just around the corner, and KCRW has our first listen of the episodes title song. Truebies know that each episode is named for a song that is used in the episode. The season 4 finale is titled “And When I Die”. Writer Raelle Tucker had the Blood Sweat & Tears version in mind when she titled the episode, but True Blood music supervisor (and KCRW DJ) Gary Calamar suggested recording a new version. “Go for it,” said Raelle and executive producer Alan Ball.

The new version was recorded by The Heavy and will be used during a big moment in the series. “It appears that one of our favorite Bon Temps characters is about to meet his (or her) maker,” write Gary on his music blog.

Click over to the KCRW music blog and for an early listen at this exclusive track. It will give you goosebumps.

  1. LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. the wording meet your maker, could mean becoming a vamp!

  3. That is one of my favorite songs of all time, and I was hoping that it was the one they were using for the show. I am also NOT a huge fan of cover songs. Like maybe I will like 1 of every 500 of them I hear, and I am being nice to put it that way. I really LOVE this one. Good pickin TB, yet again.

  4. It has that New Orleans funeral march feel to it! I think this is perfect for the show, though I’m a bit nervous who is “going to meet their maker.” Especially since the show is not following the books…it could be anyone!!! Nail bitting time!!!
