Listen to Frank Ocean, Diplo and The Clash track


Yes, you read that right. It's not a collaboration that anyone would have predicted but soul singer Frank Ocean, producer Diplo and Mick Jones and Paul Simonon of The Clash have teamed up for a new song for Converse.

It's called Hero and it's part of the Three Artists, One Song series which previously brought together Pharrell, Santigold and Julian Casablancas.

You can listen to the track below, which makes us even more impatient for Ocean's highly anticipated follow-up to Channel Orange. It's also available as a free download.
