Coulton recording new version of 'Still Alive,' Sara (of Tegan and Sara) involved

Be still, our trembling hearts. It's rare the stars of our musical and gaming interests align in any meaningful manner -- the launch of the Billy Joel Rock Band 3 track pack, for example, rocked both areas of our life to their core. However, details have been slipping out over the Twitter feeds of Jonathan Coulton and They Might Be Giants (co-founder John Flansburgh is producing Coulton's upcoming album) of a project near and dear to our hearts: A new version of Portal's ending anthem, "Still Alive."

Here's what we know so far, based on the tweets:
  • It features a guest appearance by Sara Quin, of Tegan and Sara fame
  • There's a theremin solo, performed by theremin virtuoso Dorit Chrysler
  • We probably won't get to hear it until Jonathan Coulton's new album drops in 2013
  • John Flansburgh is producing it! John freaking Flansburgh.
