Patti Smith, St Vincent and The National's Matt Berninger are among those set to appear on Volume Two of the soundtrack to hit HBO show Boardwalk Empire.

Due for release on September 3, the compilation follows Volume One, which won a Grammy for Best Compilation Soundtrack. The new release sees artists tackling songs from the 1920s.

The show's music supervisor Randall Poster said in a statement: "Boardwalk Empire provides an incredible backdrop for music. It's been a steady treat to mark the passing of time in song over the course of four seasons. Terry Winters, Martin Scorsese and the entire Boardwalk Empire team inspire the sound of the episodes."

Meanwhile, St Vincent is due to bring her 'Love This Giant' project with former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne to the UK later this month. The pair will perform three shows in London, Birmingham and Glasgow.

David Byrne and St Vincent will play:

London Roundhouse (Aug 27)
Birmingham Symphony Hall (28)
Glasgow Royal Concert Hall (29)
