The Music Network report:
The latest Converse collaboration has been unveiled with our own kiwi-adopted songstress included in the mix.

Kimbra, Foster The People’s mastermind, Mark Foster and DJ A-Trak have been announced for the seventh Three Artists, One Song series for the track Warrior, available for free download on April 5 via Journeys' retail website. The release will coincide with a new collection of Chuck Taylor footwear.

In a statement, Foster said the trio’s offering opened his eyes to the power of collaboration.

"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.

“This project has given me a newfound appreciation for the power of collaboration which is something that Converse really understands."

Joy Howard, Vice President of North America Brand Marketing for Converse said: “"Mark Foster, Kimbra, and A-Trak are making some of the most exciting music out there today and we're thrilled that our partnership with Journeys could be the catalyst for bringing them together."

Converse has previously teamed together such acts like Matt and Kim, Gorillaz, Andre 300 and Soulja Boy.
I loved their original campaign track in 2008 - My Drive Thru by Santigold, N.E.R.D. & Julian Casablancas! So I'm interested to hear this.

I think I'd be interested in hearing this one too. Would be fun to hear another Kimbra collab.

Just heard this on the radio today. Not too bad, but I don't think I'm entirely sold on it yet.

I'm not sure what the correct one is but I just tagged it "Mark Foster, A-Trak and Kimbra - Warrior" because that's how the official video is titled on Youtube.

By the way, you can download it for free on the official website. LINK :D :D :D :D

Playlisted by Triple J here in Australia, I can see Channel [V] flogging this too, but mainstream radio will be a push.

Is this available on iTunes or only via the Converse website?

This is a TUNE! Altough I just saw it, in love after first listen! 8-)

PS. I had a feeling that the melody of the song was Mark Foster's idea but they couldn't fit it in Torches :lol:

Well the tracklist might have looked a bit silly:

- Waste
- Warrant
- Warrior

Possible demos called 'Warehouse', 'Wartime' and 'Walking' :lol:

Is this by Kylie? *boomerang* How come it's back here? It's not remotely alternative. It's an A-Trak dance track first, a Kimbra pop track second. Mark Foster is the least obvious thing about it.

:roll: I personally think it sounds more Alternative than Dance, just judging on a case-by-case basis.

I'm slowly getting into this.

Next big tune. Hear it on Radio 24/7. Hasn't charted yet. But may do next week.

Looks to be future top 40 hit here.
