Cover Alert | Jim James Tackles Bob Marley

A new album of love song covers called Sweetheart 2014 is due on February 4. The CD will be sold exclusively at Starbucks locations across the country, while a digital version will be available from multiple digital music retailers. Jim James, Vampire Weekend, Beck, Phosphorescent, Ben Harper and Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings are just some of the acts who recorded songs from the compilation.

Producers of the LP have shared Jim James's version of "Turn Your Lights Down Low" by Bob Marley and we think the song fits James's silky voice perfectly.
