Bryan Ferry has recruited Kate Moss for the cover of his forthcoming solo album 'Olympia'.

For the artwork (pictured), the model is depicted in the same pose as the 19th century Édouard Manet painting of the same name.

"Kate has long been the femme fatale of our age, as controversial as she is beautiful, and the most glamorous female icon since Marilyn Monroe," Ferry told the Metro.

He added: "Olympia was a kind of early pin-up picture and, in a sense, a forerunner of some 20th century pop art, which I feel strongly connected to."

The singer has drafted in a host of guests for the record, due out on October 25, including Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, Pink Floyd's David Gilmour, Primal Scream bassist Mani, Scissor Sisters and Groove Armada.

The album is the follow-up to 2007's 'Dylanesque' and features eight new songs and covers of Tim Buckley's 'Song To the Siren' and Traffic's 'No Face, No Name, No Number'.
