Fans of cult television series True Blood will be happy to hear that the second season box-set of the phenomenal fantasy series will be released on 25th May, less than two weeks after the Season 2 finale wraps up on FX next week. Accompanying the release of the boxset, comes True Blood: Music From The HBO Original Series – Volume 2, a 14 track compilation from Season 2’s 12 episode soundtrack.
With about 10 songs played per episode in the series, I think that 14 tracks is a bit minimal for the show’s eclectic taste in music but what can you do. I was hoping for Marcy Playground’s Sex And Candy or Stephen Moyer’s version of Hard Hearted Hannah but there are some great songs on the soundtrack such as King Britt and Sister Gertrude’s New World In My View, Beck’s Timebomb and Bob Dylan’s Beyond Here Lies Nothin’.
The soundtrack can be viewed below.
