Fans have eagerly been anticipating the arrival of the Carpool Karaoke standalone show.

And the trailer for James Corden's new venture features a host of A-list stars buckling up in the passenger seats as they embark on a road trip around LA.

Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande and Gwyneth Paltrow are just a few of the big names taking part in the Late Late Show host's pet project, in conjunction with Apple Music, the Daily Mail reports.

Pop princess Miley, 24, can be seen dancing and singing along to the radio with her sister Noah, and mum Tish in the back seat.

Ariana can be seen sporting reindeer antlers, a coloured filter making her face green as she jokes around with co-star Seth MacFarlane.

Set to the tune of Willie Nelson's On The Road Again, the trailer is action packed as the celebrities make pit stops along their journeys.

Will Smith is seen crashing a wedding, while Game Of Thrones actresses Maisie Smith and Sophie Turner ride a mechanical bull and John Legend is joined by a gospel choir for a laundromat performance.

In perhaps one of the most surprising pairings, Gwyneth Paltrow raves with Jessica Alba while will.i.am bops along in the back seat.

Shakira, Joe Jonas, Chelsea Handler and Joe Jonas are just some of the stars taking part in the series.

Fans have been eagerly awaiting the trailer ever since it was revealed the show that has seen everyone from Adele for Michelle Obama take the passenger seat will be made into a standalone series.

Apple signed a deal with CBS Television Studios and Fulwell 73, the production company of Late Late Show executive producer Ben Winston, to turn the segment into its own series, which will air first exclusively for subscribers to the iPhone maker's music streaming app.

The host of the series is expected to be announced at a later date, and is not expected to be Corden - although he is set to be the Executive Producer of the series.

"We love music, and Carpool Karaoke celebrates it in a fun and unique way that is a hit with audiences of all ages," Eddy Cue, who oversees internet software and services including Apple Music for the tech giant, told Hollywood Reporter.

"It's a perfect fit for Apple Music - bringing subscribers exclusive access to their favorite artists and celebrities who come along for the ride."

"We couldn't be more excited to be partnering with Apple Music on this exciting new series of Carpool Karaoke," said Winston.

"The joy of Carpool is both the intimacy it creates, while seeing the love our passengers have for music.

"Where better to showcase that than with Apple Music?"

New episodes of Carpool Karaoke will stream on Apple Music every week starting August 8.
