Three Artists One Song: Diplo, The Clash, Frank Ocean

Converse do a good job of integrating their brand among music types. If you’re at SXSW next week, for instance, you will see no shortage of One-Star logos plastered across Austin. (You probably have a reasonable chance of going home with a free pair of Chucks or two, honestly.) Anyway, the sneaker company will head into SXSW with some self-financed buzz, in the form of the new installment of their Three Artists One Song series. The new track has been written and recorded by none other than Frank Ocean, Diplo, Paul Simonon, and Mick Jones. Technically four artists, although Simonon and Jones here are presumably just lumped together as the Clash. (Still technically four artists.) The song drops on Monday, which you can confirm over at Converse’s Tumblr, although there’s no more information there than you’ve already got right here.

  1. remember the song Julian Casablancas, Santigold and Pharell did for this, “My Drive Thru”? Man that song’s badass, I really wish it got a physical release.

  2. I hate the idea of Clash members writing a song for a shoe company… but I would like to hear this song.

  3. Can we get a new Frank Ocean album already?
