Weezer, My Morning Jacket, Andrew Bird and More Cover The Muppets

Reunited, and it feels so good...


What does Weezer, My Morning Jacket and Andrew Bird all have in common? Apparently The Muppets. The bands, along with others including OK Go, Sondre Lerche, Rachael Yamagata and more, will be featured on the upcoming Muppets tribute called Muppets: The Green Album. This coincides with the new Muppets movie coming out this fall, but the record will be out on August 23rd. Weezer teams up with Paramore’s Haley Williams to sing “The Rainbow Connection,” as OK Go takes over “The Muppet Show Theme.” Oh God let there be a music video for that. The tracklisting is below, in case you wanted to get all Gonzo about it.
