Dylan, Marley, Lennon Covers Highlight Starbucks
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 neverending 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.”
Songs by John Lennon, Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan and Bob Marley are covered on the album. Take a listen to My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James’ take on Bob Marley’s “Turn Your Lights Down Low” below.
The physical CD will hit the impulse-buy shelf at your local Starbucks February 4.
