Warpaint have covered Duran Duran's 1982 song, 'The Chauffeur'.

The band have recorded their own version of the track for 'Making Patterns Rhyme: A Tribute to Duran Duran', which also features covers of the band's work by Moby - who performs 'Rio' - and Little Dragon - who cover 'Save a Prayer'. The album will be released on July 15 and proceeds will go to Amnesty International. Click below to listen to Warpaint's contribution.

Meanwhile, Warpaint will perform an acoustic set in the Greenpeace field at Glastonbury later this month. The LA band lead a number of musical attractions in the field, including the first ever hologram music video and an all-night silent disco.

Warpaint will play acoustically on the Greenpeace stage aboard a ship - a replica of the 'Arctic Sunrise' - the ship which was boarded last year by the Russian police, who arrested and imprisoned the 30 activists who became infamous for their protest against Shell's drilling for oil in the Arctic.

Greenpeace will also stage an all-night takeover in the Silver Hayes area on the Saturday night of the festival, where a silent disco named Silent Night - Dance To Save the Arctic will take place in the Sonic Tent from midnight to 7am.
