Earlier today we got treated to new music from The artist formerly legally known as Christoper Edwin Breaux ( He Legally changed his name to his performer name Frank Ocean). The soulful single is called “Hero” and it pairs Ocean alongside Diplo and The Clash (Mick Jones and Paul Simonon) as the latest addition to Converse’s “Three Artists, One Song” series.
Read a statement from Diplo below via Pitchfork.
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 to make something that we hope no one could expect and Converse valued everyone’s artistic freedom to let us shine throughout the past few months to make this thing happen.
Listen to the song below:
