Hot Chip, Scissor Sisters and Robyn are some of the artists set to cover the work of cult musician Arthur Russell on a new compilation album.

Entitled 'This Is How We Walk on the Moon', it will raise funds for the Red Hot Organization, an HIV/Aids charity. Russell died in 1992 of an Aids-related illness.

Twin Shadow, Washed Out, José Gonzalez, Sam Amidon, Sandro Perri, Nico Muhly and Owen Pallett will all also feature on the charity album, as well as Devendra Banhart - pictured right - reports The Guardian. Of Russell, Banhart says: "I moved to New York because of Arthur Russell. He's my favourite musician."

The album currently does not have a release date.

Meanwhile, Hot Chip are set to hit the road for a UK tour this autumn. The electro band will play seven dates kicking off at Norwich UEA on October 8 before taking in dates in Leeds, Birmingham, Manchester, Bristol and Southampton. They will wrap up their jaunt at London's O2 Brixton Academy on October 19.
