McCartney is set for a September 23rd appearance and interview on Kimmel, followed by a live performance. Timberlake will hit the late-night show the next day, and will also follow up his interview with a live show. A quarter-mile stretch of Hollywood Boulevard will be closed down for the expected large crowds.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
