Metallica, Iron Maiden and The Flaming Lips have all signed up to contribute tracks to a new Deep Purple tribute album.

The record, which is titled 'Re-Machined: A Tribute to Machine Head', will see a selection of acts covering each of the tracks on Deep Purple's classic 1972 album 'Machine Head'.

Also confirmed to appear are Black Label Society, guitar virtuoso Carlos Santana and rock supergroup Chickenfoot.

As well as this, a series of one-off collaborators will join forces to record some of the tracks. Among the musicians set to take part are Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith, ex-Guns N' Roses men Matt Sorum and Duff MacKagan, Def Leppard's Joe Elliott and Steve Vai.

The collection is being put out in honour of Deep Purple's Jon Lord, who died last month at the age of 71 after suffering a pulmonary embolism.

Slash, Black Sabbath's Geezer Butler, Tom Morello, Jamie Cullum and Ewan McGregor were among those to pay tribute to Lord after he passed away.

The tracklisting for 'Re-Machined: A Tribute to Machine Head' is as follows:

Carlos Santana – 'Smoke On The Water'
Chickenfoot – 'Highway Star'
Glenn Hughes, Chad Smith and Luis Maldonado – 'Maybe I'm A Leo'
