It was previously announced that The Beatles legend was set to take part in the hit segment for The Late Late Show with James Corden, and now fans can watch all 23 minutes of the final cut online.

After getting back in the auto, Corden says Sir Paul's music is "so full of positivity and joy", and "more relevant now today than it's maybe ever been". The former Beatle also explained how "Let It Be" came from a dream he had in the '60s in which his deceased mother reassured him that "It's going to be okay".

"I got a fucking text from him [the next day]", he said.

The Late Late Show host was joined by the singer as they drove past famous Beatles landmarks. "I feel like it's more relevant now today maybe than it's ever been". "My dad would be in there (the next room) watching telly, we'd be in here, and we'd just written She Loves You, which was a big Beatles hit".
