The rumours have been confirmed: Robert Pattinson plays guitar on Death Grips' 'Birds' - a track lifted from the excellent Government Plates.

The news broke thanks to a physical release of the album for Record Store Day Black Friday (it's in the liner notes).

This is not the first time the Twilight star has been associated with DG: last year Pattinson appeared in a photo alongside the band. Hell, at one point it was rumoured that they were planning to shoot a short film featuring the actor (a rumour that was quickly denied by the band).

Listen to 'Birds' below.
