Kermit, Piggy and co. will perform songs by Nirvana, Cee Lo Green
The Muppets are making music with some cool cats.
The track list for the soundtrack to the upcoming "The Muppets" was released today and features a typically eclectic roster. According to Billboard, indie rockers Feist, Andrew Bird and Muppet-voiced harpist Joanna Newsom will be heard alongside vintage tracks from the likes of Paul Simon and Starship, and singing performances from stars Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper (!) and Andy Rooney (who duets with Feist on "Life's a Happy Song").
Plus, the Muppets themselves offer up covers of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and Cee Lo Green's "Forget You," as well as the Kermit the Frog classic "Rainbow Connection" and The Muppets theme song (which features Newsom).
Four of the songs are from "Flight of the Conchords" co-master mind Bret McKenzie.
Segel co-wrote the film with his "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" collaborator Nicholas Stoller.
