Vin Diesel’s latest film, The Last Witch Hunter, isn’t due out till October 23, but you can listen to Ciara’s new song from the soundtrack now. For the film, the not-so-elusive chanteuse serves up a haunting, soulful rendition of the Rolling Stones’ “Paint It Black.” Though the song wasn’t on Ciara’s radar before Universal approached her, she told Rolling Stone, “[the song] 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.”

The dark track should strike fear into the hearts of all Futurehive members.
