Diplo (head of Mad Decent) is teaming up with Frank Ocean and The Clash (Mick Jones and Paul Simonen) for his next release dropping March 10th 2014 via Converse Music.
's Three Artists, One Song series has brought many artists together for collaborations in the past: Gorillaz, James Murphy, and André 3000
; Best Coast, Rostam Batmanglij, and Kid Cudi
; Matt & Kim, Andrew W.K., and Soulja Boy
; Julian Casablancas, Pharrell, and Santigold
; Hot Chip, Bernard Sumner, and Hot City
Diplo said in a statement:
The Clash were always teachers to me, even before I shared a studio with Paul and Mick. Their musical anarchy and constant attitude to disregard rules and forge their own path was inspirational to me. They meant death to genres, music and message above everything. Frank lives by the same creed in being married to his vision and seeing it through at any cost. We had to challenge each other to make something that we hope no one could expect and Converse valued everyone’s artistic freedom to let us shine throughout the past few months to make this thing happen.
