I need to find the Laplace transform of t*e^{-t}*u(t-tau)

2. Relevant equations and attempt at solution

I know the general form of the transform, but my problem is in the time shift of the step function. If both parts of the expression were (t-tau), then I could just pull out an e^{(s*tau)}, but I have no idea what I'm supposed to do when one part has it and the other does not.

Can anyone help get me started?
