If the trailer for the newest Muppets movie, The Muppets with Jason Segel and Amy Adams didn’t already have you excited, this latest news will have music lovers wishing the fall was a little closer. It has been confirmed that Disney is set to release Muppets: The Green Album, which will feature artists like Weezer, Sondre Lerche and Andrew Bird.
The album will be on sale on August 23rd, a couple months ahead of The Muppets theatrical release. This track-listing is really going to blow your mind, so just be prepared to hear some Muppets classics covered by some great artists. Check it out:
01 OK Go: “Muppet Show Theme”
02 Weezer and Paramore’s Hayley Williams: “Rainbow Connection”
03 The Fray: “Mahna Mahna”
04 Alkaline Trio: “Moving Right Along”
05 My Morning Jacket: “Our World”
06 Amy Lee: “Halfway Down the Stairs”
07 Sondre Lerche: “Mr. Bassman”
08 The Airborne Toxic Event: “Wishing Song”
09 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”
Just looking through the list, there’s already six tracks I just can’t wait to listen to, especially “Mr. Bassman” by Sondre Lerche and “I’m Going to Go Back There Someday” by Rachael Yamagata. It’s just a shame that Starbucks, who announced the album, have stated they will not be taking pre-orders.
That said, this album has amazing potential, and we will just have to wait until they release previews of the tracks to learn more.
