check out the preview of the tribute album by various contemporary artists, of Muppet classics!
a bunch of current musical artists do classic Muppet music, on Muppets: The Green Album.
You’ve probably heard about this before and it’s coming out August 23rd, but NPR happens to have the thing for your online preview listening pleasure right now, and here you go:
The track listing includes OK Go doing the theme song, Weezer with Paramore’s Hayley Williams tackling “Rainbow Connection,” The Fray (really?) handling that tearjerking ballad “Mahna Mahna,” Alkaline Trio doing “Movin’ Right Along,” My Morning Jacket performing “Our World,” Amy Lee trying her hand at “Halfway Down the Stairs,” Sondre Lerche on “Mr. Bassman” (seriously, did they think, hey, who would be the least likely artist to do that song?), the Airborne Toxic Event doing the “Wishing Song,” Atreyu’s Brandon Saller with “Night Life,” Andrew Bird getting the call for “Bein’ Green,” Matt Nathanson with “I Hope That Something Better Comes Along,” and Rachael Yamagata singing “I’m Going to Go Back There Someday.”
