Cat's Eyes will record the soundtrack to a forthcoming film titled The Duke Of Burgundy, it has been confirmed.

The duo, comprised of The Horrors' frontman Faris Badwan and singer Rachel Zeffira, will work on the score with Broadcast's James Cargill and the film's director Peter Strickland. The movie will star Borgen's Sidse Babett Knudsen and Chiara D'Anna, and will be released in UK cinemas in 2014. Strickland's previous work includes 2009's Katalin Varga and last year's Berberian Sound Studio.

Cat's Eyes released their self-titled debut LP in 2011 while Zeffira's first solo album, 'The Deserters', followed in 2012.

Last month, meanwhile, it was revealed that The Horrors had pushed the release of their new album back to 2014. The band had originally been scheduled to put out the LP this September but, speaking to NME, Badwan detailed the reasons behind the delay. "We basically had the choice between finishing the record and it being one way, or giving it a few more months and it being substantially better. Albums last forever, there's no point rushing it," he said.

He was also keen to confirm that there will be no guest stars on the album by stating: "Collaborations are for losers who want to boost their careers by getting fucking Rita Ora on their track."

The album will be the band's fourth LP and the follow-up to 2011's 'Skying'. At the end of last year, the band put out a remix album of 'Skying', titled 'Higher'. Spanning over four 12-inch vinyls, two CDs and a DVD, the project features a range of artists from Blanck Mass to Andy Blake, Cherrystones, Chris Watson, Seahawks and JTC.
