Vreid - 'Paint It Black' (Rolling Stones cover)

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colours anymore, I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

I see a line of cars and they're all painted black
With flowers and my love, both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a newborn baby, it just happens every day

I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door, I must have it painted black
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts
It's not easy facing up when your whole world is black

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you
If I look hard enough into the setting sun
My love will laugh with me before the morning comes

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colours anymore, I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

I wanna see your face, painted black
Black as night, black as coal
I wanna see the sun blotted out from the sky
I wanna see it painted, painted, painted, painted black

Vreid - 'Paint It Black'
Σύμφωνα με την εταιρεία τους (Season of Mist):

«In April of 2020, Norwegian black 'n roll brigade Vreid were invited by the Norwegian Nobel Peace Center and the Inferno Festival to perform a cover song of their choosing as a part of the “Songs that change the world” series.

Unfortunately, this illustrious event was swiped off the earth by the plague that has pestered the world the last years. Nevertheless, being true rock soldiers, Vreid decided to continue this creative path and recorded the song, which has never been released.

Now, the band is finally sharing their The song the band decided to interpret is the rock anthem "Paint it Black" by the The Rolling Stones as the band regards this track among one of the most important pioneer songs for rock 'n' roll, and a blueprint from where this tree of heavy music culture has grown into a many headed beast for 7 decades now.

This song and video are a celebration of the fantastic creativity that started in the 1960s and have been developed by so many great artists and bands ever since. Vreid has incorporated their humble respect to many of rock 'n' roll's greatest musicians.

Το 1994 σχηματίσθηκαν στην Νορβηγία οι Windir. Viking Metal συγκρότημα το οποίο διαλύθηκε το 2004 λόγω του θανάτου του Valfar. Τα εναπομείναντα μέλη δημιούργησαν τους Vreid. Η μπάντα χαρακτηρίζει την μουσική της ως "Black 'n' Roll" κι έχει κυκλοφορήσει εννέα "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους (και μπόλικα singles). Ο ένατος και πλέον πρόσφατος φέρει τον τίτλο "Wild North West" και "βγήκε" πέρυσι...
