Frank Ocean Diplo and The Clash's Mick Jones and Paul Simonon have teamed up to record a new track called 'Hero'.

The song is part of Converse's Three Artists, One Song series, which has previously brought together collaborations between Gorrilaz, James Murphy and Andre 3000; Beast 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.

As Pitchfork report, 'Hero' will be available to download from March 10 on Converse's Tumblr page.

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."

He added: "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."
