Stephen Colbert

Yes, you read that headline correctly. Next Monday, September 26, Radiohead will be guests on a special one hour edition of The Colbert Report, which airs on Comedy Central. This is the first hour-long special the show has ever done.

Radiohead will perform four songs, featuring material off its most recent album, The King of Limbs, as well as the recently debuted and unreleased track, “The Daily Mail.” An additional song will also be performed for the online version of The Colbert Report.

Colbert said in a statement: “I look forward to meeting the Radioheads and leveraging their anti-corporate indie cred to raise brand awareness for my sponsors.”

This special episode will air two days after Radiohead kicks off the new Saturday Night Live season with host Alec Baldwin.
