Converse Rocks Out with its Own Birthday Song

In honor of Converse's 100th Birthday, Pharrell Williams, N.E.R.D. and New York's own Santogold and The Strokes' Julian Casablancas have collaborated on My Drive Thru, which will be available for free download tomorrow on converse.com.

"I've always wanted to work with Julian and I'm a big fan of The Strokes. Santogold is super-talented and she cares about music so much that it's not just about sound, it's a visual aesthetic," said Pharrell Williams, the track's producer, in a statement. "Working together on original music that crossed all of our inspirations was completely refreshing and I love the track. As for partnering with Converse, I only wear and support the things that I like. The Chuck Taylor is the golden goose egg."

It's already been getting interesting reviews; so I highly suggest you check it out.

And don't forget N.E.R.D.'s new album, Seeing Sounds drops tomorrow, too.
