Converse’s “Three Artists, One Song” series presents yet another dope collaboration titled “Hero” featuring Frank Ocean, Diplo, and the Clash’s Paul Simonon, and Mick Jones.
Last year, Converse delivered a dope collaboration featuring the Gorillaz, Andre 3000, and James Murphy on “DoYaThing.”
“My flag is American, but I love some Queen/ I’m young enough to vote, and told the trees/ I be playing concerts in mud, until the sequel/ be finding subjects to paint in the buff, behind the easel,” sings Frank Ocean.
The good folks at Noisey spoke with Diplo about the collaboration, and he stated:
“The Clash were always teachers to me, even before I shared a studio with Paul and Mick. Their musical anarchy and constant attitude to disregard rules and forge their own path was inspirational to me. They meant death to genres, music and message above everything. Frank lives by the same creed in being married to his vision and seeing it through at any cost. We had to challenge each other to make something that we hope no one could expect and Converse valued everyone’s artistic freedom to let us shine throughout the past few months to make this thing happen.”
