Damon Albarn and Jarvis Cocker join Scott Walker tribute gig
Scott Walker has chosen artists including Jarvis Cocker, Damon Albarn and Dot Allison to perform music from his albums 'The Drift' and 'Tilt' at three shows next week.

The world premiere of 'Drifting And Tilting - The Songs Of Scott Walker' takes place at London's Barbican from November 13-15.

As previously reported, Walker won't be performing at the concert, although he is producing and 'sound designing' the shows.

Instead, the likes of Albarn, Cocker and Allison will perform his songs backed by a 42-piece orchestra and Walker's band.

Other performers include Gavin Friday, Michael Henry and Nigel Richards.

Walker has worked with Jarvis Cocker before, producing Pulp's last album, 2001's 'We Love Life'.
