It is! Can't wait to hear more :D

Press release about the soundtrack:

BURBANK, Calif., Feb. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Muppets are back on the big screen with the all-new caper "Muppets Most Wanted," creating the musical mayhem that's made them fan favorites for almost four decades. With songs by Bret McKenzie, who won an Oscar(R) for the original song "Man or Muppet" in 2011's "The Muppets," and a score by Christophe Beck, who's behind the scores of Disney's Oscar-winning short "Paperman" and the Golden Globe(R)-winning, Oscar-nominated hit "Frozen, " the soundtrack features all-star vocalists, including Kermit the Frog, Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, Tina Fey, Miss Piggy, Josh Groban, Constantine and Celine Dion. Walt Disney Records will release the "Muppets Most Wanted" soundtrack March 18, three days before the movie hits theaters.

"The 'Muppets Most Wanted' soundtrack is some of the best music by a frog, pig, bear, chickens, penguins and a--uh, whatever--ever recorded," said Kermit the Frog. "It's like going on tour with the Muppets, but without the messy cleanup afterwards."

According to McKenzie, who wrote songs for the Muppets' last big-screen adventure, the songs are true to the Muppets' musical reputation: they're packed with puns, punch lines and Muppets mayhem. "All of the songs are quite story specific," he said. "They're very character driven.

"'I'm Number One' is about the bad frog Constantine being the number one criminal and his sidekick Dominic, played by Ricky Gervais, being number two," McKenzie continued. "It's a power struggle, a classic rivalry song in a style that could be performed in a cabaret venue. A lot of the old Muppets songs are like that--show pieces."

The soundtrack features a host of show pieces, including the fully orchestrated "We're Doing a Sequel," with special appearances by Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett, along with the whole Muppets gang, and "Something So Right," a ballad written for Miss Piggy and celebrated performer Celine Dion. "Miss Piggy is wonderful," said Dion. "She's so charming and sensitive and filled with passion. She has a big heart and it was wonderful to sing with her."

"I was magnifique," added Miss Piggy, "With a little help from moi, I think Celine may have a big future in singing."

The soundtrack also includes "Interrogation Song," featuring Ty Burrell, Sam Eagle and the Muppets. It's what McKenzie calls "a conversation put to music," and actually started out as dialogue from the film. Additionally, Tina Fey, who plays feisty prison guard Nadya, takes center stage--complete with Russian accent--with the renowned Josh Groban in "The Big House."

The "Muppets Most Wanted" soundtrack features 20 tracks--including 12 new recordings--plus five bonus tracks. Also featured is score by Beck, who incorporated styles from around the world in a nod to the international locales the Muppets visit in the film. "This score was incredibly fun to write," said Beck. "With characters spread across the world, there was opportunity after opportunity to explore many musical styles and settings."

Beck introduced several character themes--Constantine has a Slavic theme, for example, and Kermit and Miss Piggy are accompanied by a love theme (of course) that is an extension of music from "The Muppets." An 80-piece orchestra was sprinkled with unique instruments, including a banjo, Spanish guitar and a Russian Balalaika. "The real fun was the 20-person Russian male chorus, which is heavily featured," said Beck.

Following is the final track list for Walt Disney Record's "Muppets Most Wanted" soundtrack. Preorder is now available at both iTunes (http://smarturl.it/mmwa1) and Amazon (http://smarturl.it/mmwAmazona1).

ABOUT THE MOVIE

Disney's "Muppets Most Wanted" takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe's most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid, Dublin and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine--the World's Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit the Frog--and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon and Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard. Disney's "Muppets Most Wanted" is directed by James Bobin and produced by David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman. Bobin wrote the screenplay with Nicholas Stoller, who is also executive producer with John G. Scotti. Featuring music from Academy Award(R)-winning songwriter Bret McKenzie, "Muppets Most Wanted" hits the big screen March 21, 2014.

I hope this boy is having his Weet-bix!!! He looks very tired at the premiere. Looks like he needs a little rest. Maybe a sleep? I'm happy to keep an eye on him while he sleeps, if necessary :P Just putting that out there. Don't know though, I mean, he looks good and his beard is good, but I think he looks tired. He had better just be tired and not sick!!! :(
