Damon Albarn, Andre 3000, James Murphy to Collaborate for Converse Song
Damon Albarn (appearing as newly created Gorillaz characters), OutKast’s Andre 3000 and former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy are set to release a collaboration for Converse, the Sun reports. The track is a part of Converse’s “Three Artists, One Song” series, which has seen collaborations between Andrew W.K., Matt and Kim, and Soulja Boy, and another between Kid Cudi, Best Coast and Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij.
The track will be titled “DoYaThing” and will be available on Feb. 23 through Converse. There will also be a 12-minute version of the track, which will be available at a later date.
The Sun also reported that the first two verses feature Albarn rapping, not singing. Gorillaz’ Jamie Hewlett is also finishing a video for the song, which is set to feature two new characters. In other Albarn news, his project with Flea titled Rocket Juice and the Moon is slated to release an album this March, which you can read more about here.
