The program also will feature a guest appearance by Conan O’Brien. Colbert and his guests have been appearing on The Late Show remotely from their homes because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Like many artists during the crisis, Stipe has been sharing a number of video messages on his official YouTube channel while he shelters at home. The former R.E.M. singer’s latest clip, which was posted on March 28, featured him introducing a brand-new solo song titled “No Time for Love Like Now,” which he reported was a collaboration with Aaron Dessner of indie-rock group The National.
The video features Stipe singing live along with a demo track of the melodic, slow-tempo song.
Earlier in March, Michael posted two other YouTube clips that featured him singing parts of the R.E.M. tunes “It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine),” and “Underneath the Bunker,” as well as sending out advice and encouragement related to the coronavirus situation.
