Frank Ocean has been quietly working on his new album, but in the meantime, he has teamed up with Diplo and a couple rock legends on a new collaboration.
Converse has commissioned the channel ORANGE singer for the latest installment of its “Three Artists. One Song” series. Produced by Diplo, the song “Hero” also features The Clash’s Mick Jones and Paul Simonon.
“Working with Mick and Paul was a dream come true, add in Frank, it got even better,” said Diplo. “The experience was just totally awesome.”
“Hero,” recorded in London, Hawaii, and Los Angeles, will be available for free download on March 10 at Conversemusic.Tumblr.com.
It marks the ninth track in Converse’s “Three Artists. One Song” series, which has featured André 3000, Kid Cudi, Pharrell, Soulja Boy, and Gorillaz.
