Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke is set to release a 3D printed single for charity.

The release, 'Down Boy', will come out as a limited edition vinyl single to raise money for music therapy charity Nordoff Robins. It will be the first ever publicly available record made using a 3D printer. The track will see Okereke duetting with Bobbie Gordon and will be sold at the Bacardi pop-up shop in London in December. Details of the store will be released on Bacardi's Facebook page, reports The Guardian.

Bloc Party gave their last performance before their hiatus in July, headlining the main stage on the first day of Latitude Festival. Drummer Matt Tong was notably absent and was replaced by Sarah Jones of New Young Pony Club.

However, speaking to NME after the band came offstage, bassist Gordon Moakes dismissed speculation that Bloc Party's break could be permanent, saying: "There's no end point with this band."
