On Monday, August 20 at 8ET/PT, CBS will air an hour-long primetime special called "Carpool Karaoke: When McCartney Met Corden Live From Liverpool." It features never-before-seen footage from Carpool Karaoke with Paul McCartney, which previously aired on The Late Late Show with James Corden during its week of episodes from Central Hall Westminster in London.

Viewers will remember James and Paul driving around Liverpool, seeing the rock legend's childhood home and several of the places referenced in early songs from The Beatles. 

"We were overwhelmed by the response to our Carpool Karaoke with Paul McCartney. We loved making it and knew we had something special, but it was so wonderful for us to see how many people watched and enjoyed it,” said Ben Winston, executive producer of The Late Late Show.

Winston continued, “I think it resonated with people as Paul’s music speaks to every generation, young and old, especially today. The message in the music is as relevant now as it has ever been. 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.”

The hour-long primetime special, "Carpool Karaoke: When McCartney Met Corden Live From Liverpool," airs on Monday, August 20 at 8ET/PT on CBS.
