Shooter Jennings Covers The Ramones' Classic "She Talks To Rainbows'

by Kyla Bills

Shooter Jennings has never done what's expected of him. The son of country legends Waylon Jennings and Jessi Colter, he's done everything from playing on Warped Tour to releasing a spoken word album that sold out in a day. After starting his own record label in 2013, Black Country Rock, Jenning's reach has only gotten farther -- releasing everything from his father's music to a 7" featuring Ron Jeremy playing classical piano.

In the spirit of Shooter's musical range and the warm fuzzy feeling you get from year-end round ups, Black Country Rock is releasing a BCR Mixtape 2014, which is available for order right now as a CD, cassette tape, or a digital version for those who are analog-averse. The track list (included below) is a recap of the releases from Black Country Rock -- including some that were limited-edition for Record Store Day -- with an addition of four brand new tracks, two from Shooter himself.

We here at Paper are excited to premiere the video for one of these new songs from Shooter, a cover of the Ramones' classic "She Talks to Rainbows." The cover is reminiscent of Ronnie Spector's version of the song, with a definite Southern rock vibe. The animated video juxtaposes the whimsical and the dark aspects of the track, with fairies and butterflies giving way to padded cells and a Grim Reaper-esque demon. Give it a watch, above.
