Appearing on the album are bands such as OK Go, Weezer and Hayley Williams, The Fray, Alkaline Trio, My Morning Jacket, as well as solo artists like Andrew Bird, Matt Nathanson and Amy Lee. Muppets: The Green Album will be released on August 23rd.

Following the release of Muppets: The Green Album, is Disney’s highly anticipated comedy "The Muppets" arriving this Thanksgiving on the big screen with Jason Segel, Amy Adams and Chris Cooper in a brand new Muppet adventure that will captivate moviegoers of all ages. The original motion picture soundtrack for “The Muppets” will be released by Walt Disney Records on November 22.

Songs included on Muppets: The Green Album are:

1. A raucous rock version of "The Muppet Show Theme" performed by the award-winning quartet OK Go.

2. "The Rainbow Connection" - The Oscar-nominated ballad from "The Muppet Movie" (1979) sung by veteran rock band Weezer and Hayley Williams.

3. "Mahna Mahna" - A memorable track from "The Muppet Show," originally done by Mahna Mahna and the Snowths, here performed by multi-Grammy nominated Chicago band The Fray.

4. "Moving Right Along"- Alkaline Trio puts a punk-pop spin on this favorite from "The Muppet Movie.”

5. "Our World" – Louisville, Kentucky's very own, My Morning Jacket with a song from Jim Henson’s TV holiday special from 1977, "Emmet Otter’s Jug Band Christmas."

6. "Halfway Down the Stairs" - Former Evanescence singer Amy Lee turns in a haunting rendition of a song performed by Kermit’s nephew Robin on "The Muppet Show.” The track was a Top 10 hit in the UK.

7. "Mr. Bassman" - Norwegian singer/songwriter Sondre Lerche puts a funky acoustic spin on this classic from "The Muppet Show.”

8. "Wishing Song" - Indie band The Airborne Toxic Event turns in a dark take on a song from "The Muppet Show" (originally sung by The Great Gonzo).

9. "Night Life" - a song from the film "The Great Muppet Caper" (1981) performed with hard rock abandon by Brandon Saller of Atreyu and Billy Martin.

10. "Bein’ Green" - A mellow acoustic-flavored version of one of all-time great Muppet songs, performed by Chicago-based singer/songwriter Andrew Bird.

11. "I Hope That Something Better Comes Along" - Another winsome track from "The Muppet Movie," sung here by San Francisco singer/songwriter Matt Nathanson.

12. "I'm Going to Go Back There Someday" - Singer Rachael Yamagata closes the album with her gentle interpretation of this ballad from "The Muppet Movie.”
