Two music videos directed by the late Hollywood actor Heath Ledger are to be released for the first time.

The videos, for Modest Mouse and Grace Woodroofe, were shot shortly before the actor's death in January 2008.

Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock said he and Ledger had devised the animated video for the band's track 'King Rat' after meeting in Australia.

The song is taken from Modest Mouse's 2007 album 'We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank'.

The Oscar-winning actor's other video is for Woodroofe's cover of 'Quicksand' by David Bowie.

Ledger died from an accidental drugs overdose at his apartment in New York.

He was awarded a posthumous Oscar in February for his role as The Joker in Batman - The Dark Knight.

The actor also directed music videos for the late Nick Drake, which was shown at a tribute to the musician, and N'fa.
