James Corden's Carpool Karaoke gets a release date

The Apple Music exclusive series, spun off from Corden's Late Late Show, will finally premiere on August 8th after a hefty delay. 

Apple's Eddy Cue tweeted the date out earlier today, confirming it's arrival just in time for the summer. The series will feature, of course, celebrities singing along to the car radio. Corden himself is slated to appear in at least two of the planned episodes. Subscribers to Apple Music will get all of the episodes at once.

With exclusivity remaining with Apple for the time being, I think it'll be hard for these to go viral like it's television forerunner. That said, this fits right in with the new programming-first approach the service has begun.
