The season premiere of One Tree Hill hits in just over a week, and to get us ready, the CW has released a haunting four-minute sneak peek of the season premiere. Why haunting? Because it's set to a mournful tune sung by Ms. Bethany Joy Galeotti herself.

Press play above to see the scene, and then click in for the latest from Robert Buckley and Shantel VanSanten on their incoming characters!

We caught up with Shantel recently and she told us: "I'm Quinn. I'm Haley's sister. I come in, and I'm trying to figure out my life, figure out where it's going to go. You go back home sometimes to try to center yourself. I'm a photographer, so I start collaborating with Brooke, who is Sophia Bush." Look for lots of drama between the three pretty ladies of Tree Hill!

As for the boys, the very charming Robert Buckley (who once worked here at E!), tells us that neither he nor Shantel was familiar with the show when they were cast, but they are caught now because, as he says, "We went on a One Tree Hill bender. We watched like 45 episodes in the span of four days." Fun!

Now, what do you think of this sneak peek of One Tree Hill season seven? Better than ever, or just not the same without Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton?

One Tree Hill premieres Sept. 14 at 8 p.m. on the CW.
