Avicii and Diplo have also recorded cuts for the set, which aims to raise money for the anti-AIDS organisation (RED).

"When I went to Africa in 2006, I was struck by the devastating effect of AIDS," said Tiesto in a statement.

"Now the world has an incredible chance to make sure that babies are born HIV-free by 2015, and the dance community is going to make a lot of noise to help make this happen."

(RED) CEO Deborah Dugan added: "What Tiesto and his friends in the dance music community are bringing to this fight is invaluable.

"They bring the kind of heat that is so desperately needed to keep this issue at the top of the agenda."

The album will feature Tiesto's recent collaboration with Bono on a remake of U2's 'Pride'.

Dance (RED), Save Lives will be accompanied by a YouTube live stream from Tiesto and other DJs during Melbourne's Stereosonic Festival, which will be staged during World AIDS Day weekend on December 1 and 2.
