Looking to set the mood this Valentine's Day? Rod Stewart's got you covered with a playlist called Cupid.

Sir Rod's distinctive voice has led the way on plenty of romantic tunes, and Cupid has 16 of them from across his blockbuster career. There's some familiar covers, like his versions of Cat Stevens' "The First Cut is the Deepest," Van Morrison's "Have I Told You Lately" and Sam Cooke's "Cupid" (a bonus track from his 2001 album Human). And there's a few originals you'll no doubt remember, like the hits "Tonight's the Night (Gonna Be Alright)," "You're in My Heart (The Final Acclaim)" and the '80s earworm "Love Touch."

But what makes Cupid fun for Rod die-hards is the presence of five tracks that have never been digitally available before. There's "Faith of the Heart," a power ballad from the soundtrack to Patch Adams; "Careless with Our Love," a Japanese bonus track from 1998's When We Were the New Boys; "Kiss Her for Me" from the box set The Rod Stewart Sessions; and non-LP B-sides "Love in the Right Hands" and "One Night."

Rod may call himself a "hopeless romantic," but hit play on this set and you'll do just fine.
