Hits by Eminem, Coldplay and Beyonce have been given an African makeover for a new charity album to benefit climate change and disaster relief projects.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mumford & Sons, Plan B, Bruno Mars, REM and Fleet Foxes have also signed on for the Rhythms Del Mundo: Africa album project from Artists Project Earth (Ape).

The release will feature African mixes of contemporary hits, including musical makeovers by the likes of Toumani Diabate, the Ali Farka Toure Band and Rokia Traore.

Proceeds from album sales will support organisations working throughout Africa to mitigate the impacts of climate change and drought.
