Muppet Music Covered by My Morning Jacket, Andrew Bird and More
If a new Muppets movie wasn't enough, fans of the lovable gang will be pumped to learn that a collection of rock acts are geared up to release 'The Green Album' (no, not that "Green Album," though Weezer will make an appearance with Paramore's Hayley Williams).
'Muppets: The Green Album' will feature a handful of musicians, including My Morning Jacket, Andrew Bird, Sondre Lerche, Alkaline Trio and the Airborne Toxic Event, taking on covers of Muppet standards and will be released on Aug. 23.
The Muppets have long been fostered a relationship with popular music, recently covering Queen. That, paired with the new, Jason Segel-starring Muppet movie on the horizon (Nov. 23), spells a modern Muppet takeover that is primed and ready to go.
The track list:
1. OK Go, 'Muppet Show Theme'
2. Weezer and Paramore's Hayley Williams, 'Rainbow Connection'
3. The Fray, 'Mahna Mahna'
4. Alkaline Trio, 'Moving Right Along'
5. My Morning Jacket, 'Our World'
6. Amy Lee, 'Halfway Down the Stairs'
7. Sondre Lerche, 'Mr. Bassman'
8. The Airborne Toxic Event, 'Wishing Song'
9. Atreyu's Brandon Saller and Good Charlotte's Billy Martin, 'Night Life'
10. Andrew Bird, 'Bein' Green'
11. Matt Nathanson, 'I Hope That Something Better Comes Along'
12. Rachael Yamagata, 'I'm Going to Go Back There Someday'
The Muppets Perform 'Bohemian Rhapsody'
