Starbucks has released the tracklist for the chain's latest Valentine's Day compilation in their annual series Sweetheart: Our Favorite Artists Play Their Favorite Love Songs. The 13-song set, featuring artists including Vampire Weekend, Fiona Apple, Jim James and Beck, is due out on February 4th via Concord/Hear Music. It will be sold at digital retailers as well as that Starbucks down the road from you.
The songs chosen range from the obvious, like Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings doing Stevie Wonder's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours" to the not-so-obvious, like Fiona Apple's cover of Anton Karas' "I'm in the Middle of a Riddle" and Vampire Weekend's take on Andrea Bocelli's "Con Te Partiro."
To get the buzz going, they've released Jim James' cover of Bob Marley's "Turn Your Lights Down Low."
