Vampire Weekend, Beck, Fiona Apple, on Starbucks Covers Compilation
You won’t be seeing this compilation on the rack next to the breath mints and Madeleine cookies for a few months now, but when you do see it at the front of Starbucks, it’ll be pretty enticing. In a never-ending series of coffee compilations, Starbucks and Hear Music/Concord Music Group offers up Sweetheart 2014, where the saying goes, “our favorite artists play their favorite songs.”
Beck, Fiona Apple, Jim James, Vampire Weekend, all appear on the comp, covering John Lennon, Anton Karas, Bob Marley and Andrea Bocelli’s famous “Con Te Partirò”, respectively. Take a listen to James’ take on Bob Marley’s “Turn Your Lights Down Low” below, as well as the rest of the tracklist for the comp (via Pitchfork).
The physical CD will hit the impulse-buy shelf at your local Starbucks February 4.
