The Colbert Report will air a one-hour music special with Paul McCartney next Wednesday, June 12. In addition to his interview with Colbert, McCartney is set to perform songs from his Out There tour, Wings Over America, which has a 2013 reissue, and more. ‘I think this McCartney kid’s got something special and I’m gonna put him on the map!” said Colbert, in a press release.

This will be the first time McCartney has performed on the show but he first appeared on Colbert in early 2009. Click here to watch that appearance. (It does not disappoint).

McCartney will have to rest up after this performance, because he’s set to perform at Bonnaroo on June 14.
