"On August 23rd, Disney will release a music album titled Muppets: The Green Album, which features contemporary musical artists such as OK-GO, Weezer and My Morning Jacket covering the songs of The Muppets. You can buy the CD now for only $11.29. But you don’t need to wait until next week to hear it — NPR has a “First Listen” of the cd in its entirety. Hit the jump to listen to the full album."
What I'm really surprised (but very pleased) about is the fact that they're all reasonably talented artists.
Thankfully no Black Eyed Peas in sight.
