To create buzz for the new Muppet movie coming out this Thanksgiving (which will feature songs by Flight of the Conchords‘ Bret McKenzie), YouTube heroes and indie rockers Ok Go have covered the theme song from The Muppet Show on “The Green Album,” which drops August 23.  NPR says the album “sticks to songs written specifically for or performed by the Muppets, and culls from a deep catalog of fan favorites.”  Tracks include “Rainbow Connection” by Weezer and “It’s Not Easy Bein’ Green” by Andrew Bird.  Enjoy a preview of some of the tracks below!

You can stream the entire “Green Album” online at NPR Music.
