You know the soft rock/world music CDs you see at the check-out point of your local Starbucks? Turns out that these CDs aren’t entirely worth passing up. Starbucks’ label Hear Music/Concord has gathered some of the best and brightest musical talents for the Fleetwood Mac tribute compilation, Just Tell Me That You Want Me, and with producers Randall Poster and Gelya Robb, who were behind the grammy-nominated Rave On Buddy Holly, you know it’s going to be worth adding on to your $4.85 tall skinny vanilla latte.
The album isn’t set to be released in the U.S. until August 14th, but until then, you can enjoy five tracks off the album thanks to Soundcloud. Each is a mandatory listen, both for the hardcore Fleetwood Mac fan and the casual music listener. Best Coast’s take on “Rhiannon” is poppy with lead singer Bethany Cosentino’s signature California tone. MGMT‘s rendition of “Future Games” adds a trippy, layered synth voice to the already hazy summer tune. If the entire album is as fantastic as this, we are in for more than a midday coffee treat come August.
