[singlepic id=227 w=320 h=240 float=left] Â My Morning Jacket on track for winning the award of ‘Most diverse places a band can appear’ (Levon Helm’s farmhouse nightclub, Preservation Hall with the PHJB, American Dad, etc.). The latest MMJ buzz: their new tune “The Green World”, which is actually not their song, but one from the Muppets.
Here’s the story from Rolling Stone Â magazine:
Earlier this year,Â My Morning JacketÂ toldÂ Rolling StoneÂ that a few of the tracks on their latest albumÂ CircuitalÂ wereÂ originally written for Gorillaz-like project involving the Muppets, and that two other songs penned by frontman Jim James were rejected from the forthcomingÂ MuppetsÂ movie starring Jason Segel. “Twice, Muppet glory has been within my grasp,” James said. “It’s pretty heartbreaking.”

Well, it looks like James and MMJ have finally attained their moment of Muppet glory. The band haveÂ recorded a cover of “Our World,”Â a song from the 1977 Muppets Christmas specialÂ Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas, forÂ The Green Album, a disc of Muppet covers that will be released around the same timeÂ The MuppetsÂ hits theaters in November.
