Listen To This. Ciara Covers The Rolling Stones’ ‘Paint It Black.’

Ciara Rolling Stones Paint it Black

Weeks after a clip surfaced on Instagram and had fans begging for more, we finally a final version of Ciara’s cover of The Rolling Stones’ classic “Paint It Black.”

Ciara transforms the rock and roll tune into a soulful, driving, moody, powerhouse ballad.

The opportunity to create the track, which appears on the soundtrack for the upcoming Vin Diesel vampire flick The Last Witch Hunter, came as a suprise to her.

“When they asked me to do this, I was like, ‘Absolutely. This would be an honor,’ Ciara tells Rolling Stone. “I had never thought to cover this song. 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. The direction that she went in was actually a sound I’ve always wanted to play with, and it just didn’t get any better than being able to cover a Rolling Stones song. I feel like it pushes the edge and the limit for me, in reference to what people probably expect from me. So this was so many cool things in one. It was a huge honor, and then creatively I just got to really have some fun that I don’t usually do in my music.”
