David Cameron gave world leaders at this year's G8 meeting a compilation album as a gift - but unexpectedly it contained music to turn the airwaves blue.

Leaders, including US president Barack Obama, Russia's Vladimir Putin and chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany were all given the gift of a USB stick featuring 10 songs at the gathering in Northern Ireland last month.

The stick, which included tracks by Mercury Prize winners Alt-J, Jake Bugg and Rudimental, featured Tom Odell's hit Another Love.

The song, a top 10 hit earlier this year, is marked "explicit" on digital music site Spotify and includes the lyrics "So I'll use my voice, I'll be so f****** rude. Words they always win, but I know I'll lose".
