Duran Duran donating royalties from Eagles of Death Metal cover

Duran Duran have confirmed that they will donate royalties from sales of an Eagles of Death Metal cover of one of their tracks to charity.

A fan-led campaign is currently trying to get the US rock band's version of 1982's 'Save A Prayer' into charts across the globe.

89 people were killed at Eagles of Death Metal's show at Paris' Bataclan venue on Friday (November 13) in a terror attack.

On Monday (November 16) the track had reached No.96 in the UK.

Duran Duran's Simon Le Bon later took to Twitter to confirm that they will donate royalties from the song to charity.

He said: "EODMforNo1 DuranDuran will donate all proceeds due to us, from this version. Considering options that are useful, peaceful & uniting."

Eagles of Death Metal's merchandise seller Nick Alexander was confirmed to have died in the attack.

The band managed to flee the stage and escape after gunshots rang out.

The massacre was part of a co-ordinated series of attacks that took place in the French capital on the same evening that killed more than 120 people.
