Duran Duran: still hungry like the wolf

Moby and Juliette Lewis are among the artists who appear on a forthcoming Duran Duran tribute album. Have a listen to Moby's languid take on that unforgettable paean to 1980's excess Rio right here.

Other contributors to the album, which is titled Making Patterns Rhyme and due for release in July, include Warpaint covering The Chaffeur, Liars doing Ordinary World and Little Dragon with Save A Prayer.

All proceeds from sales will go to Amnesty International and organisers Manimal Vinyl say they "intentionally chose album cuts and B-sides rather than the worldwide smash hits that Duran Duran are known for".

Duran Duran released their own tribute album, Thank You, in 1993 on which they recorded versions of I Wanna Take You Higher by Sly & The Family Stone, Bob Dylan's Lay Lady Lay, and Public Enemy's 911 is a Joke
