Mark Foster, Kimbra, and A-Trak team up for 'Warrior': Watch the video premiere here -- EXCLUSIVE


When we last left Converse’s “Three Artists, One Song” project, Damon Albarn of Gorillaz went to the mat with LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy  and OutKast’s Andre 3000 on “DoYaThing.”

For their next trick, the company has gathered together Foster the People frontman Mark Foster, “Somebody That I Used To Know” guest sprite Kimbra, and Canadian turntable mastermind A-Trak for a song called “Warrior.”

The song will be available for download for free at the official website for shoe store Journeys, but you can take a first look at the video for “Warrior” below.

The colorful, kinetic clip stars Foster and A-Trak as less-than-willing Mexican wrestlers (or luchadors to those who follow the career of Dr. Wagner Jr.), with Kimbra fronting a mariachi band
