Converse take up Gorillaz tactics

Posted at 4:30 pm, February 23, 2012 in Music & Nightlife

Converse and Gorillaz shoeConverse’s Chuck Taylor All Star pump has had a Gorillaz makeover. In case you missed it in this week’s Time Out magazine, designer and Gorillaz co-creator Jamie Hewlett has souped up the classic sneakers with graphic prints using elements from the virtual band’s memorable artwork. But wait, there’s more.

To mark the occasion, Converse has commissioned the sixth song in its ‘Three Artists, One Song’ collaboration series: ‘DoYaThing’ featuring Gorillaz, James Murphy and Andre 3000. It’s the first time Murphy’s been behind the boards since he produced LCD Soundsystem’s ‘This is Happening’ in 2010 – the same year Gorillaz last released any new music. Andre has been quiet for a minute, too. The video for ‘DoYaThing’ drops February 29 but for now the audio version is yours to enjoy below. Nick Aveling
