Did you know that the Muppets have a new album in stores right now? Well, it isn’t the Muppets signing, it is actually a number of bands covering some pretty famous Muppet songs. It’s called the Green Album and it was released on August 23rd.
I was very skeptical when I first heard about this. I really enjoy the Muppets and if something like this didn’t have the right feel to it, it would have just made me angry. But this is like everything else the Muppets have been involved with lately, it is handled with care of source material and turned out fantastic. If you want to check it out before you buy anything, thanks to NPR you can listen to the entire album by clicking HERE.
Oh yeah, there is also this incredible video by OK Go. The Muppets have been steadily gaining steam again with all the fantastic web videos. Now we get this fun album. Things are looking up for the movie. I’m still very scared of it; I don’t want to get my hopes up too high.
