LONDON (Reuters) - Robbie Williams has joined forces with rock veterans Queen to record a new version of their 1977 hit "We Are The Champions" for a film soundtrack.

But a spokesman for Williams stressed that the song, recorded for the film "A Knight''s Tale" starring Australian actor Heath Ledger, was a one-off collaboration.

The track was recorded by Williams with Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon from the group which has sold over 100 million records. Their lead singer Freddie Mercury died of AIDS in 1991.

A spokesman for Williams said: "There are no plans to release it as a single here or in the U.S. It''s for a film so it will just be part of a soundtrack."
