Sleigh Bells have recorded an acoustic cover of Beyonce's single 'Irreplaceable' – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen.

The US duo unveiled their own version of the track, which originally featured on Beyonce's second studio album 'B'Day' and was released as a single in 2006, on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show yesterday evening (March 6).

Sleigh Bells teamed up with Beyonce for a collaboration last year after the pop megastar was impressed by their track 'Kids' but the project, which was put together by producer Diplo, has never been released.

However, guitarist Derek Miller told NME that he hadn't given up hope of working with the singer in the future, stating: "Obviously we're massive fans of her and she's a living legend. I'd love to actually work with her someday when I actually get some creative input. I wouldn't say that it [the project] failed, it just feels like it never really happened."

Sleigh Bells released their second album 'Reign Of Terror', which is the follow-up to their debut 'Treats', last month (February 20). You can hear the LP in full by clicking the widget below.
