Apple's 'Carpool Karaoke' Series Has A New Premiere Date

Summer's basically here, and it's prime hammock weather. Which would make the idea of staying inside repellant, but screens and sunlight don't mix, and James Corden's baby is so much more fun than any damn season. If you're wondering when the Carpool Karaoke series premiere date is, I've got you. Apple Music will be releasing the series to subscribers only on August 8. That gives you just enough time to both re-watch the entirety of every Carpool Karaoke sketch ever on the interweb and to try the songs out yourself in real life if you're almost as into singing tunes post a few beers as you are into watching this Late Late Show segment.

At the Code Media conference in February, a trailer of the upcoming series was shown with celebrities like Will Smith, John Legend, Ariana Grande, and Alicia Keys in the mix. During the same conference, Apple previously teased the series as set to drop in April, but, in the month it was meant to debut, the company released a pretty vague statement "Carpool Karaoke: The Series will premiere on Apple Music later this year." Which makes this second release date all the sweeter for being (hopefully) concrete.

If you're considering proving your undying love for a certain British singing enthusiast with cold hard cash, getting an Apple Music subscription costs just $9.99 a month.

But what can you expect of the upcoming series? For a start, you're going to want to put Tuesday night plans on hold for the foreseeable future post-August, as that's when each episode comes out. According to Recode "Corden doesn’t host every episode like he does for CBS," but he's still on hand to have adventures with celebrities — much like his helicopter ride with Will Smith, where they both serenade each other with the R.Kelly hit "I Believe I Can Fly." That sounds like far too much fun for hosting this series to be a paying job.

Beyond the guests already listed above, expect Metallica, Seth MacFarlane, Chelsea Handler, John Cena, and Shaquille O’Neal. So roll on, August. You can't come soon enough.
