Listen: Diplo, The Clash & Frank Ocean Reveal “Hero”

Frank Ocean - HeroThe folks at Converse are pros when it comes to breaking the rules of genres (dig up the Converse CONS EP Vol. 1), and FYI: they have no desire to slow down. Today, they’ve revealed a brand new Three Artists, One Song collabo that features DIPLO, FRANK OCEAN, and THE CLASH’s MICK JONES and PAUL SIMONON teaming up on a track called “Hero”. The single was partly recorded at Studio 13 in London and it’s one that’ll tap your spine. Listen below.

In a statement about the project, Diplo noted: “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…”
