Beck covers John Lennon 'Love' for Starbucks compilation

Wednesday, January 01, 2014

Christmas has just come and gone, so obviously that means that Valentine's Day is right around the corner (for retailers, at least). Starbucks is readying the release of its Sweetheart 2014 compilation, the latest in the coffee chain's series of love-inspired cover songs.

With a tracklist featuring indie rock bigwigs such as Phosphorescent, Vampire Weekend and Fiona Apple, Sweetheart 2014 is sure to be any hipster's dream Valentine's Day present. To help hype up the release of the album, "Loser" singer Beck has revealed his contribution to the album: an acoustic cover of John Lennon's "Love." Beginning with a somber piano and seguing into a heavy-handed guitar, Beck is highlights the best of "Love" with soft, dazed vocals that wind around the song's signature riffs.
