Colbert to meet Radiohead in hour-long episode

September 20th, 2011 by JAKE COYLE, AP Entertainment Writer in News

NEW YORK (AP) - Stephen Colbert meeting Radiohead is such a special occasion, a regular episode of "The Colbert Report" wasn't sufficient.

The Comedy Central show will air its first hour-long episode Sept. 26, when Colbert sits down with the British rock group.

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."

Colbert lost at the Emmys on Sunday night to "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart."
