Starbucks V-Day comp to feature She & Him, DCFC, more

This year, Starbucks won't just celebrate Valentine's Day with strawberries 'n' cream frappuccinos and white-chocolate mochas. According to a recent press release, the coffee conglomerate approached "their favorite artists"—including Ben Gibbard, Katy Perry, M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel—and asked them to cover "a tune that's touched their hearts."

Death Cab For Cutie will be singing The Cure's already-much-covered "Love Song," She & Him are covering Screamin' Jay Hawkins' "I Put A Spell on You" and Katy Perry is singing Sam Sparro's "Black and Gold."
The album will debut in Starbucks stores across the country on Jan. 30.
