Radiohead are reported to have recorded a song for a David Bowie tribute album being organised by the charity War Child.

If the rumours are true, the band will be joining the likes of Carla Bruni and Charlotte Gainsburg who are contributing to the Ashes To Ashes record which will be released next year.

Hints of Radiohead's involvement were dropped after Mick Karn, a former member of 80s band Japan who is also part of the project, posted a message on his official website which said: "The release of the David Bowie tribute album on War Child has been postponed until February 2010 due to some of the artists schedules not permitting an earlier release.

"Featured artists will include Radiohead."
