Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, Patti Smith and Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam are set to feature on the soundtrack for West Of Memphis, a film about the West Memphis Three.

Bob Dylan, Band Of Horses, Marilyn Manson and Johnny Depp will also feature on 'West Of Memphis: Voices For Justice', which will be released by Sony Music on January 21, 2013.

West Of Memphis is a documentary film directed by Amy Berg and produced by Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, telling the story behind the 1993 murders of three eight-year-old boys in Arkansas and the three teenagers wrongfully arrested and jailed for their murders.

A host of musicians who came out in support of the wrongfully jailed Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley, feature on the soundtrack.

The score for the film was written and performed by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis. "It was an honour to have made a contribution to the film and to have played a part in raising awareness of the case of the West Memphis Three," said Cave.

The soundtrack includes Henry Rollins' 'Damien Death Row Letter (Year 9)', in which the former Black Flag man reads a letter written to him by Echols in 2003.

Johnny Depp appears on a cover of Mumford & Sons' 'Little Lion Man', by Tonto's Giant Nuts and Marilyn Manson's Depp-featuring cover of Carly Simon's 'You're So Vain' is also included.
