New Muppet Movie & CD

Did you peeps know about this?!  I hope not, because I would have expected you to share assoonas you found out, like I am doing now!


I'm super excited about anything Muppets.  Hubby proposed to me during Muppets From Space and Christmas isn't Christmas without watching The Muppet's Christmas Carol.
So, here are the details:  the following is taken from www.pitchfork.com


Fact: if you do not like the Muppets, you are not a human being with a working heart. So this is a pretty good year for human beings, then-- there's a new Muppet movie, The Muppets, coming out November 23. And on August 23, Disney will release Muppets: The Green Album, a collection of musicians offering covers of Muppet standards.
My Morning Jacket, Andrew Bird, and Sondre Lerche are among those that contribute takes-- as are Weezer, who team up with Paramore's Hayley Williams (a pairing that assumedly makes at least one Pitchfork writer very, very happy) for a rendition of the classic Kermit-sung "Rainbow Connection". We have the tracklist for you below, as well as the trailer for The Muppets.
Muppets: The Green Album
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"



Happy Muppets everyone :)
