Gorillaz, James Murphy and Andre 3000 Issue ‘DoYaThing’ Joint for Converse

 

Converse's "Three Artists, One Song"
Converse.com

The much-hyped collaboration between Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn, former LCD Soundsystem mastermind James Murphy and Andre 3000 of Outkast fame has finally surfaced, and it has certainly been worth the the wait. The track, ’DoYaThing,’ is the latest from the Converse-commissioned “Three Artists, One Song” series which, true to its name, features three musicians or groups teaming up to record one song.

And what a track it is. With a sonic backdrop that would feel right at home on Gorillaz’s ‘Plastic Beach,’ ‘DoYaThing’ features some smooth Damon Albarn rhymes, a sharp hook compliments of Murphy and a free-flowing rap from 3000 bringing in the rear. It’s like taking pieces from three different puzzles and somehow fitting them together into one tight-fitting, scenic groove.

The cut is the latest in the “Three Artists, One Song” series, which has previously boasted Matt and Kim, Soulja Boy and Andrew W.K. working together on ‘I’m A Goner,’ KiD CuDi, Best Coast and Vampire Weekend rocking ‘All Summer‘ and a handful of other collaborations. Converse recently opened a recording studio in Brooklyn, N.Y., called Rubber Tracks where some of these recordings — and many more from obscure, up-and-coming artists — have taken place.
