For the first time EVER the soundtrack will be available on vinyl in mid-June. Perfect timing for those that anticipate the sixth season of True Blood, premiering June 16. True Blood is an HBO original series that is based on the best-selling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.
True Blood is about bloodsucking vampires, yes but the dynamic storyline, set in a fictional town of Bon Temps, Louisiana, centers around a romance between Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer). Sookie is a mind-reading waitress (something we all wish we had) who is compelled by whole new world when she discovers Bill, a 173-year-old vampire.
