Eric Buron with Jenny Lewis

In anticipation of the May 28th release of True Blood® Music From The HBO Original Series Volume 4, we are thrilled to share the E Records and ABKCO Records new version of “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” by Eric Burdon with Jenny Lewis. Transformed into a sultry duet, Burdon with Lewis has resurrected the classic blues-rock song originally popularized by Eric Burdon and The Animals in the late sixties.  Burdon and Lewis’s call and response approach, enhanced by their seductively intertwining vocal styles, lend a noir-esque feel to the track.

“True Blood has gotten under my skin by way of osmosis,” Burdon explained. “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.”

    I just listened to Don’t let me be misunderstood – it was very well done — considering I remember hearing it when it came out originally

  2. I absolutely, positively love me some Jenny Lewis. It seems that no matter what project she gets involved with, who she sings with, or what her style is, I am always going back to the Rilo Kiley album The Execution Of All Things. Definitely one of my top 10 favorite albums of all time.
