NEW YORK — 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.”
