The supergroup will allegedly perform a new song after working together at a studio session, according to The Sun.

The legendary singer said that they should "just make something up" with Grohl, Novoselic and Pat Smear.

McCartney is quoted as saying: "I didn't really know who they were. They are saying how good it is to be back together. I said 'Whoa? You guys haven't played together for all that time?'

"And somebody whispered to me 'That's Nirvana. You're Kurt.' I couldn't believe it."

The Concert for Sandy Relief will feature an all-star group of performers, including Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi and The Who.

Coldplay, Kanye West, Alicia Keys and The Rolling Stones will also perform at the 12.12.12 gig.
