Frank Ocean Partners With the Clash and Diplo for ‘Hero’

Frank Ocean collaborates with the Clash’s Mick Jones and Paul Simonon for the soaring tune ‘Hero,’ a song created for Converse’s “Three Artists. One Song” music series.

Produced by Diplo, the track was recorded during studio sessions in Hawaii, Los Angeles and London, and features additional vocals from the West Los Angeles Children’s Choir. The result is a throwback-sounding, guitar-blaring rock banger.

“I’m a bad boy, I’m a punk / I’m a black man, I could dunk / And I’m hanging low and I’m swinging far,” sings Ocean on the track.

“Working with Mick and Paul was a dream come true, add in Frank, it got even better,” says Diplo about the recording. “The experience was just totally awesome.”

Converse’s “Three Artists. One Song” campaign brings together musicians from various genres to create new, original songs. Artists who have participated in the collaborative project include Pharrell Williams, Gorillaz, Andre 3000, LCD Soundsystem, Kid Cudi and many others.
