A host of artists affiliated with the Communion record label have come together to record a version of the late folk musician John Martyn's song 'Over The Hill', from his 1973 album, 'Solid Air'.

The track features contributions from Michael Kiwanuka, Ben Howard and Ben Lovett of Mumford and Sons - pictured below - as well as The Staves and members of Bear's Den. Scroll down to listen to the song and watch a video of the recording process, which took place during last month's SXSW music festival in Austin, Texas.

Last month Michael Kiwanuka admitted that he used to think he wasn't good enough to be a singer. Kiwanuka won the BBC Sound Of 2012 poll earlier this year and released his debut LP 'Home Again' in March but, in an interview with the Daily Star, he revealed that he had never thought he had enough talent for a career in music – and also said he could easily have quit when playing his first gigs.

Earlier this year, Kiwanuka teamed up with The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach on a new collaboration. Speaking about their song 'Lasan', Auerbach said: "It was great – really quick. We went and did it really quick at Ray Davies' studio. It was nice. Obviously his voice is amazing the songs are cool. The production on that stuff is great too – I like what the guy is doing."
