It's finally here! The much-anticipated duet between Iggy Pop and Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino for True Blood hit the Internets today and it would be hard to ask for much more than this swampy, sinuous romp. "Let's Boot & Rally" has an instantly memorably bass line, a galloping rhythm and the honey-toned voice of the indie songstress is a perfect counterpoint to the weathered, rambling tone of the punk forefather.

True Blood's music supervisor, Gary Calamar, told a Los Angeles-based public radio station how Iggy got involved with Sookie & co. "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," Calamar wrote on KCRW's website. "We sent Iggy the demo of 'Let's Boot & Rally'. He loved it and said sign me up."
