EARLY MORNING JAM: Gorillaz, LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy and Andre 3000

Sometimes corporate sponsored music actually brings us something pretty awesome. So kudos to whoever in Converse's marketing department was able to convince Gorillaz, LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy and Andre 3000 to to collaborate on a brand new track, "DoYaThing," so they could release it for free. Sure it's ostensible reason for existence is to pimp the brand's new collection of shoes, some of which is Gorillaz-related, but we're willing to mix a little commerce with our art if it means getting the art for free.

O.K., so if these three are recording, can we start laying bets on Blur and OutKast on the main stages at Lollapalooza with Murphy spinning in Perry's tent? Hey, a music nerd can dream, right?

Download the jam below and get your boogie on.
