New Converse Song To Feature Gorillaz, James Murphy, & Andre 3000

This is the kind of news that makes me a proud wearer of Chucks. Converse's ongoing "Three Artists, One Song" series has produced original songs featuring team-ups of artists as far ranging as Kid Cudi, Best Coast, Soulja Boy, Hot Chip, and New Order's Bernard Sumner. And as Pitchfork reports, the next song in the series is set to feature the best and weirdest artist partnership yet.

"DoYaThing," set for release on Converse's website on February 23, will feature Damon Albarn's most beloved non-Blur project Gorillaz throwing down with former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy and OutKast's own Andre 3000. Gorillaz posted the above artwork on their Facebook today, and I've gotta say I'm loving the cartoon versions of Murphy and Andre 3000 right off the bat.

We'll post up the track as soon as it's available, and in the meantime you can stream Gorillaz's announcement of the collaboration below.
