Native rockers Midnight Shine have added new glitter to Neil Young's "Heart of Gold" with a new version containing a verse in Mushkegowuk Cree.

The Attawapiskat band released a music video for the cover filmed completely in the Northern Ontario community.

The clip contains lead singer Adrian Sutherland plays guitar and accordion in a boat filled with his family and friends.

The video was captured last October near Sutherland's home as part of a five-day marathon shooting that included filming for two other songs.

Midnight Shine's "Heart of Gold" introduces new elements to one of Young's most beloved songs, including a great drumming, slider, pow wow song and the translated Cree verse.

Sutherland performs Indigenous chant and vocal while Trews' Chris Gormley appears as a guest drummer.

The singer said in a press release that it was difficult to directly translate English into Cree words because gold is described as "money rock". He said it would not justify Young's opinion, so instead of "the heart of gold" he chose to say "good heart".

"Heart of Gold" appears on Midnight Shine's third album "High Road."
