Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder are among a host of stars set to appear on a new Nick Drake tribute album.

Jack Johnson and Norah Jones have also record covers of Drake's hits for the record.

The album will be accompanied by a DVD which includes a video for Drake's 'Black Eyed Dog' shot by the late Hollywood actor Heath Ledger.

David Schulhof, of music publishing company Evergreen Copyrights, told the BBC that “no-one in the world” has seen the video before.

Drake died in 1974 at the age of 26. He is widely regarded as one of the most influential folk singer/songwriters of all time.

The album and DVD is due to be released later this year on Johnson's own record label.
