Carole King's "So Far Away" Artist's Choice on New Starbucks CD

SEATTLE, WA - Starbucks' latest artist compilation, Sheryl Crow's Artist's Choice - Music That Matters to Her, was released this week and features Carole King's classic "So Far Away". Crow's compilation consists of 15 songs spanning from the 60's to the present day. Of "So Far Away", Crow comments, "['So Far Away'] was the song I learned and played over and over and over. And, not only was [King] one of the first influences for me, but also a very strong female example of where you could go."

The Crow compilation is the latest in the Starbucks series featuring songs that have motivated artists throughout their careers. Previous compilations were put together by such diverse artists as the Rolling Stones, Lucinda Williams and Yo-Yo Ma.
