Converse continues their Three Artists. One Song campaign (previous collabs included Matt & Kim, Soulja Boy and Andrew W.K. on I’m A Gonner, Santifold, Pharrell and Julian Casablancas on My Drive Thru and KiD CuDi, Rostam Batmanglij from Vampire Weekend and Best Coast on All Summer) by throwing Andre 3000, Gorillaz and James Murphy (former LCD Soundsystem frontman) in a pot and hoping for the best.
It was literally akin to a bunch of kids playing with toys until someone else said, ‘Ooh! I like that bit!’ Writing the lyrics was the funniest part… one person would be mumble-singing something and another would overhear him and ask, ‘Oh… did you just sing…’ I don’t know… some crazy words that weren’t at ALL what the guy was singing, and those new, misunderstood words could become the hook for a verse. I loved that about it. – James Murphy
The song — entitled DoYaThing — will be available for the free on February 23rd.
