JUSTIN BIEBER AND U2 have agreed to contribute songs to a charity album to help the victims of the Japanese tsunami.

The digital-only album could be released as early as this week.

The record will also feature artists like Rihanna and Bon Jovi, and raising funds for the Japanese Red Cross. The record label, Universal, told the BBC that the worldwide digital release would be “faster” than physically selling the album.

Other artists that may feature on the album include Lady Gaga.

The confirmed death toll from the Japanese disaster stands at 10,000 people – and more than 13,000 are still missing, according to the Los Angeles Times.
