The original score of True Blood, composed and performed by Nathan Barr will be released on September 8th. Today the video of “Take Me Home” has it’s world premiere.
In the exclusive interview The Vault did with Nathan he said about Take Me Home:
I wrote this song and performed it with vocalist Lisbeth Scott who is well known for her work in films as diverse as Shrek, Munich, and The Passion Of The Christ. The song was written specifically for this scene as Sookie finally allows herself to feel the grief of her grandmother’s murder. I thought something hymn-like would be appropriate with elements that are both beautiful and tragic. Lisbeth wrote the beautiful lyrics which fit the scene so perfectly without being too on the nose. We played it for Alan and he loved it and we were overjoyed since this particular scene was such a great moment to feature music.
This remixed version of “Take Me Home” appears on Lisbeth Scott’s next project, Hope Is a Thing, which drops in October and benefits music education.
