Santogold has teamed up with The Strokes' Julian Casablancas for a song about Converse trainers.

Pharrell Williams also features on the track, reports the Guardian.

Speaking about the song Santogold said: "Everybody on it does their own separate thing and we didn't do it together so it ends up being just this weird long song with sort of everybody with lots of their own personalities separate."

She described the untitled song as "such a Pharrell track".

The singer also said that she wasn't worried about doing a song for a brand.

"It's like one of the main ways to get our music heard now," she explained, "and so it's stupid for artists to shy away from that."

A video has also been shot for the track.
