The first lady of France as well as the rock band have submitted their interpretation of Bowie's classics such as 'Absolute Beginners'.
France's First Lady Carla Bruni and Duran Duran have submitted covers of David Bowie songs for a new charity compilation. The artists are among those contributing to new War Child double album "We Were So Turned On: A Tribute to David Bowie".
The compilation also features Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, A Place to Bury Strangers and Caroline Weeks. Bruni covers "Absolute Beginners", while Duran Duran offer up a rendition of "Boys Keep Swinging".
But the highlight of the entire album is former Japan star Mick Karn's version of "Ashes to Ashes". The guitarist was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer.
The album is released on October 11.
