Like Rostam, Best Coast & Kid Cudi did in 2010, and more recently Gorillaz, James Murphy and Andre 3000, Mark Foster, Kimbra and A-Trak have teamed up, on Converse’s tab, to create a new song as part of the shoe company’s “3 Artists 1 Song” program. Says a press release:

“I had such a good time diving into the creative process working with two incredible artists to create a sound that is uniquely our own,” said Mark Foster of Foster The People. “This project has given me a new found appreciation for the power of collaboration which is something that Converse really understands.”

“Warrior” is a new genre-bending collaboration that weaves together Mark Foster, Kimbra and A-Trak’s individual musical styles to create 4 minutes of pop perfection. Recorded at Converse Rubber Tracks studios in Brooklyn, NY and remotely while on tour, “Warrior” blends the best parts of each artist’s contributions and personalities for the latest Converse Three Artists. One Song collaboration.

The song and video won’t be available on Converse’s website until April 5th, so we don’t know how perfect that pop really is yet, but you can watch the video for the Gorillaz/LCD/Outkast collaboration below.

Last night (3/26), one night after she played with Gotye at Terminal 5, and one night before she plays with Gotye at Webster Hall (tonight), as part of a tour that continues to Coachella, the just-turned-22-today (the crowd sang her Happy Birthday) New Zealander Kimbra headlined her own early show at Mercury Lounge in NYC. An excited ‘According 2 G’ was there, and says, “She’s going to be HUGE!…. One of the songs she performed tonight was ‘Plain Gold Ring,’ a Nina Simone cover and this girl can SANG, as they say. Wow! She blew the roof off Mercury Lounge and the crowd erupted in screams when the song was finished.” Here are some pictures and a video from the small NYC show. More below…
