Here’s what we take away from “Hero,” the newest track from Converse’ “Three Artists One Song” series, the world enjoys Frank Ocean when he’s not getting sued by Chipotle.

As part of Converse short film series, KiD CuDi, Rostam Batmanglij (of Vampire Weekend) & Bethany Contentino (of Best Coast) were commissioned to make a song together. Considering the latter 2 artists play for alternative indie bands, the song is more in that lane. KiD CuDi is no stranger to rocking left field tracks though.
