Listen: Half of The Clash, Diplo and Frank Ocean team up on 'Hero'




Sneaker company Converse have been running their Three Artists One Song ad campaign for a while now. In the past they have brought together Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast, Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend and Kid Cudi but the newest collaboration is even more diverse as it combines R&B singer Frank Ocean, Mick Jones and Paul Simonon of The Clash and EDM artist/producer Diplo for a track entitled Hero.

In the press release that accompanied the release of the track, which you can listen to below and is available as a free download, Diplo explained the influence The Clash had on him as a teen in LA; "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"
