Published Mar 10, 2014As previously reported, modern R&B master Frank Ocean recently teamed up with Diplo and the Clash's Paul Simonon and Mick Jones for a new single called "Hero Hero Hero." Today, that song has hit the web.
The track arrives as part of Converse's Three Artists, One Song campaign, which has previously seen collaborations between Gorrillaz, James Murphy and Andre 3000; Matt & Kim, Andrew W.K. and Soulja Boy; Julian Casablancas, Pharrell and Santigold, and many others.
On the project, Diplo released the following statement:
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.
