Hear Joanna Newsom & Feist’s Muppets Soundtrack Songs

By Scott Lapatine / November 7, 2011 - 12:24 pm

Here’s an early listen to the new “Muppet Show Theme,” which we learned last month features vocals from Joanna Newsom. It’s not much of a cameo, but keep in mind the song’s less than a minute and they’ve gotta fit Miss Piggy’s ego in there.

The Muppets And Joanna Newsom – “The Muppet Show Theme”

Also streaming is “Life’s A Happy Song” which was written by Flight Of The Conchords’ Bret McKenzie and concludes with lines from Feist and Mickey Rooney alongside Jason Segel, Amy Adams, and new Muppet Walter. Check that out below.
