CBS will present Carpool Karaoke: When Corden Met McCartney Live From Liverpool on Monday, August 20 (8 p.m. ET/PT). The primetime special will feature never-before-seen footage from the popular “Paul McCartney Carpool Karaoke” segment which aired on The Late Late Show with James Corden on June 21. During the “Carpool Karaoke” segment, Corden and McCartney drove around Liverpool, visited McCartney’s childhood home and several of the places referenced in the song “Penny Lane,” and surprised locals with an intimate performance at a pub.

On August 12, McCartney toured Corden’s Late Late Show set in Hollywood.

“We were overwhelmed by the response to our ‘Carpool Karaoke’ with Paul McCartney. We loved making it and knew we had something special,” said Ben Winston, executive producer of The Late Late Show. “I think it resonated with people as Paul’s music speaks to every generation, young and old. After the shoot, while we sat in the edit, we had to cut so much we loved for time. Not only did Paul do a concert in that Liverpool pub, but James and he discussed so much in the car. We are so delighted CBS has given us this primetime special to make an hour-long version of this ‘Carpool Karaoke.’ Now everyone can see the joy of that concert and more of their chat.”

McCartney’s new album, Egypt Station, will be released Sept. 7. A new song, “Come on to Me,” from the album was featured in the original “Carpool Karaoke” segment on The Late Late Show.

The former Beatle has been on a whirlwind dash with well-publicized private concerts at London’s Abbey Road Studios and at Liverpool’s Cavern Club, among the activities.
