“In 2020 we were invited by the Norwegian Nobel Peace Center and the Inferno Festival to choose and perform a cover song as a part of the “Songs that change the world” series. Unfortunately, this event was swiped off the earth by the plague that have pestered the world the last years. Nevertheless, we decided to continue this creative path started and recorded the song.

“When the song was recorded, we made video for it. We used our wizard brothers Håvard Nesbø and Kim Holm to create a homage to the crazy world of rock n´ roll. Håvard who produced our Wild North West movie produced the music video and Kim who did the artwork for our Solverv and Welcome Farewell albums did the art. The song we decided to interpret in our Vreid universe is the rock anthem Paint it Black by the The Rolling Stones. This 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 1960ies and have been developed by so many great artists and bands ever since. We have incorporated our humble respect to many of our leading stars in this video, and it was fascinating to see how naturally this song transformed into our own universe. Remember, It´s Only Rock n´ Roll.”
