Converse – Three Artists, One Song

It started with My Drive Thru, a collaboration with Julian Casablancas, Pharrell and Santigold released in 2008 for Converse’s centennial and available as a free download. I loved the tune and still play it out in DJ sets.

Converse decided to make a habit of this and recruited more artists to collaborate, calling the series “Three Artists, One Song.” All Summer by Kid Cudi, Rostam Batmanglij from Vampire Weekend and Best Coast is brilliant, a great summer anthem from 2011. I was less into I’m A Goner by Matt and Kim, Soulja Boy and Andrew W.K. The most recent one is genius – Gorillaz, Andre 3000 and James Murphy have written a track called Do Ya Thang. Check out the amazing video by Jamie Hewlett below and download here.
