Weezer, Andrew Bird, My Morning Jacket Record Muppets Tribute Album


The track list was just released for The Green Album, a tribute comprised of Muppets cover songs, and it's almost knowingly designed for pop-culture blogs to hype. Many of the web's favorite bands make an appearance: Airborne Toxic Event, OK Go, Andrew Bird, etc. In the most marquee assignment, Weezer is singing "Rainbow Connection" along with Paramore's Hayley Williams. Between this and the spoof teaser trailers, whoever is doing the marketing for the upcoming The Muppets reboot deserves a promotion.
