Listen to Eric Burdon and Jenny Lewis Sing The Animals' "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood"

A song from True Blood: Music From The HBO Original Series Volume 4 has emerged and this one features another duet (remember Iggy and Bethany?), breathing new life into the classic song recorded by The Animals in the late ‘60s. For this new rendition, Animals’ vocalist Eric Burdon returns to his classic with a new partner in singer-songwriter Jenny Lewis.

In a press release, Burdon said “True Blood has gotten under my skin by way of osmosis. When I was asked to record a new version of ‘Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood’ for the new season with Jenny Lewis, I had to bite. Ms. Lewis has an incredible voice. She, Gary Calamar and the whole production team made it all so easy. The song seems to have stood the test of time. It runs through my veins and Jenny gave it a nice, fresh transfusion of energy.”

You be the judge by checking out the lyric video below, as well as the collection’s tracklist. The soundtrack is due on May 28 via ATO, and will be released on vinyl for the first time in the series.
