The song is part of the launch of a line of footwear that will be sold exclusively at Journeys shops; it will be made available as a video and free download from the Journeys website on April 5th.

"I had such a good time diving into the creative process working with two incredible artists," Foster said in a statement. "This project has given me a newfound appreciation for the power of collaboration."

Previous installments in Converse's series of collaborations include "DoYaThing," a track by Gorillaz with James Murphy and Andre 3000; Best Coast's "All Summer," featuring Kid Cudi and Rostam Batmanglij from Vampire Weekend; and Matt and Kim, Soulja Boy and Andrew W.K.'s "I'm A Goner."

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
