But, again, there is good news. Today, we got a first listen to "Hero," Ocean's contribution to Converse's "Three Artists One Song" series. Here, he's teamed up with super DJ, Diplo, which seems more than natural. The third leg of this trio, however, is a little unexpected. Punk vets Mick Jones and Paul Simonon of The Clash ("the only band that matters") add a bit of guitar, bass, and rock cred to the track, which turns out is all about Ocean's ability to cross genres. Helping out on that tip is West Los Angeles Children's Choir. Punks and choir kids? That sounds just about right for Ocean.
Listen to the track yourself right here.
