Ciara puts her spin on the Rolling Stones classic “Paint It, Black” for the upcoming action film The Last Witch Hunter starring Vin Diesel. The song is given a stormy, psychedelic makeover—Ciara’s growling rendition sounds just right for a movie about witchcraft.
“I had never thought to cover this song,” she told Rolling Stone. “It was never on my radar to cover it, but when the opportunity came along, I was very thrilled, because I love what the producer Adrianne Gonzales did.”
She went on to explain that rock instrumentation is a sound she’s “always wanted to play with, and it just didn’t get any better than being able to cover a Rolling Stones song.”
Ciara will hit the road again in support of her latest album Jackie, starting next month.
