Tim Minchin was the musical guest on The Late Late Show with James Corden and performed a highlight from his debut studio album.
The Aussie comedian and singer took to the late night stage on January 5th with his backing band to sing ‘Talked Too Much, Stayed Too Long’ (a sentiment we hope Corden wasn’t thinking about the star).
It’s a track from Apart Together, which was somehow Minchin’s debut studio album despite being in showbusiness for decades (we’re not complaining about his musical comedy records at all). It was unsurprisingly a hit in his home country, reaching number three in the ARIA album chart.
In a virtual chat with Corden from the middle of New South Wales before performing, Minchin revealed the inspiration behind the song: “Quite often, I find myself waking up in the morning having been out with friends or at a dinner party. I love nothing more than drinking wine with friends around a dinner party and having a good chat.”
