Foster the People, Kimbra, A-Trak Team for Converse Collabo

Find out when you can download the trio's new tune

Converse is on a roll of sorts.

Following the recent (and admittedly awesome) collabo from Gorillaz, Andre 3000 and LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy, Converse has unveiled the latest trio of musicians for its "Three Artists. One Song" campaign: Foster the People frontman Mark Foster, Kimbra and A-Trak. Not bad. Not bat at all.

Their song, "Warrior," and an accompanying music video, will be available as a free download via shoe store Journeys' website starting on Thursday, April 5. (The song/video coincides with the launch of Converse's footwear collection of seasonal colors, which will be available exclusively at Journeys this spring). 

The four-minute track was recorded at Converse Rubber Tracks studios in Brooklyn, NY, and remotely while the artists were on tour. "I had such a good time diving into the creative process working with two incredible artists to create a sound that is uniquely our own," said Foster. "This project has given me a new found appreciation for the power of collaboration."

July 22: HyunA Monkeys Around

HyunA, the K-pop star who gained global recognition from co-starring in Psy's "Gangnam Style" video, is teasing her new single "Red" in a very sexy, very odd new photoshoot. The singer poses amid two hunky beefcake wearing humongous, furry monkey heads. HyunA's new music will reportedly showcase a more "mature" side from the singer and while this isn't the look we were necessarily imagining, it does amp up our anticipation.

Get to know more about HyunA in our video feature here.
