For those of you eagerly anticipating the return of One Tree Hill tomorrow night, the CW released some interesting news on something they’ll be doing with the theme song for the series’ eighth season.

While it’s been three seasons since One Tree Hill has used its theme song at the start of each episode, the Gavin McGraw hit song “I Don’t Want To Be” is making a comeback on the series, but there’s a twist:

In an innovative twist, the show will feature a different performer covering the hit song throughout the season, each in their own unique style. Featured artists include Aimee Mann, Patrick Stump of “Fall Out Boy,” “Tegan & Sara,” Matthew Ryan, Laura Izibor and Kate Voegele.


Something similar was done for the Showtime series Weeds in its second and third seasons as the song “Little Boxes” was covered by a different artist each week. Wondering how the theme song would sound each week became part of the charm of the show. The same might be the case for One Tree Hill.

One Tree Hill Season 8 premieres Tuesday, September 14 (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) on The CW.
