If you like bump and grind ‘cause it’s good for your mind, then you’re going to want to check out the all-star T.Rex tribute album that’s in the works.

T.Rex is best known in the United States for their classic hit “(Bang A Gong) Get It On,” but the band, fronted by the late Marc Bolan, had a string of hits in the U.K. and Europe, and per Variety, those hits will be covered on a new tribute album slated for release in 2019.  Among the artists to be featured on the album are U2, Elton John, Joan Jett, Foo Fighters, Nick Cave, Perry Farrell and many more.

While a track listing has yet to be released, Variety is reporting that a source says U2 have recorded “(Bang A Gong) Get It On” for the album.

The tribute album will accompany a new documentary about T.Rex also slated for release in 2019.
