Gervais recently brought back his famous comic creation David Brent, the lead character in BBC sitcom The Office, for a series of YouTube-based guitar tutorials. The online series, titled Learn Guitar With David Brent, sees the former paper merchant manager playing a number of original compositions including 'Equality Street' and 'Life On The Road'.

Toro Y Moi, whose real name is Chaz Bundick, has now posted a cover of another song in the series, 'Slough', on SoundCloud. Writing a message to accompany the track, he said: "Dear Ricky, hope you like this cover. Peace, Chaz."

The singer released his third studio album 'Anything In Return' in January of this year. The record, which was recorded in California, was the follow-up to his 2011 record 'Underneath The Pine' while his debut album, 'Causers Of This', was released in 2010.

Last month (July 27), meanwhile, Ricky Gervais claimed that a number of major record labels have offered him the chance to record an album as David Brent. Before he found fame as a comedian and actor, Gervais was a member of the band Seona Dancing, who released two singles before parting ways in 1984.

Meanwhile, Slough was today revealed as the third ugliest town in Britain, according to a poll by the makers of the Crap Towns books.
