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

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."

What do you think about this new collabo? Tell us in the comment section below. And, while you await the April 5 arrival of "Warrior," listen to "Do Ya Thing," the last Converse track from Gorillaz, James Murphy and Andre 3000.
