Jason Segel’s upcoming The Muppets is said to host a handful of cameos from pop artists (such as Lady Gaga and Katy Perry), but it’s the film’s tribute compilation that has us really humming. Muppets: The Green Album features 12 songs originally performed by the furry cast of characters, reinterpreted by the likes of OK Go (who handle the “Muppet Show Theme”), Weezer and Paramore’s Hayley Williams (who both contribute to a cover of “Rainbow Connection”). Jump below to see what other acts are going green.

Does this mean we can expect to get another amazing video from OK Go featuring The Muppets? Fingers crossed!
