Paramore, Weezer and Many More Sign on for Muppets Tribute Album

The full blown 2011 muppet revival is moving right along. First with the new Muppet movie coming this fall and now with a tribute album ‘The Green Album’ (get it?) featuring artists like Haley Williams, Amy Lee and OK Go.

The compilation will be released on August 23, 2011. That gives us a good three months to get our Muppet groove on in preparation for the movie which is set to be released on November 23rd.

The track listing for ‘The Green Album’ is as follows:

OK Go – ‘Muppet Show Theme’ Weezer and Hayley Williams – ‘Rainbow Connection’ The Fray – ‘Mahna Mahna’ Alkaline Trio – ‘Moving Right Along’ My Morning Jacket – ‘Our World’ Amy Lee – ‘Halfway Down The Stairs’ Sondre Lerche – ‘Mr Bassman’ The Airborne Toxic Event – ‘Wishing Song’ Brandon Saller and Billy Martin – ‘Night Life’ Andrew Bird – ‘Bein’ Green’ Matt Nathanson – ‘Hope That Something Better Comes Along’ Rachael Yamagata – ‘I’m Going To Go Back There Someday’

Here is a sneak peak of Andrew Bird performing his version of ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green.’ Are you excited NOW?
