"Fresh Blood" is a song by American rock band Eels. It was released as the first single from their 2009 album Hombre Lobo.


The song is about a werewolf who desires "fresh blood". E has described the song as a sequel to "I Want to Protect You".[1]


On March 31, 2009, the band made the track available on,[1] explaining that the song would be the lead single for the album.

A music video directed by Jesse Dylan premiered on April 29, 2009.[2]

A 7" single was released on May 18, 2009, in the United Kingdom featuring the album track "My Timing Is Off" as an A-side backed with "Fresh Blood".[3] Both singles were made available on the iTunes Store.


The song was featured in the sixth-season episode "Legacy" of the TV series Rescue Me and the end credits of the third-season episode "Fresh Blood" of the series True Blood. The song was also featured as the opening theme of HBO's 2015 documentary series, The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst and recently as the opening and closing theme to Amazon's Original series Sneaky Pete.
