Michael Bublé sings Canadian Sea Slums with Stephen Colbert

Michael Bublé seemed to forget the lyrics of a classic Canadian hometown song during a recent live TV appearance.

The singer, 46, was a guest on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert earlier this week, ahead of the release of his ninth studio album – titled Higher – later this month.

During his late-night talk show appearance, he talked about having worked as a fisherman in his youth, and he revealed that he used to fish for salmon.

The topic prompted host Stephen Colbert, 57, to mention sea shades – which have proven popular on social media platforms like TikTok – to Bublé.

The presenter introduced “Classic Shabby Sea” Barrett’s Privateers – which he said was about Canadian pirates. It was released by the late folk singer Stan Rogers in 1976.

Rogers – like Bublé – was born and raised in Canada, Colbert hoped the singer would know the song, since it comes from his hometown and he’s a fisherman.

Asked if he knew it, Bublé said: “Arr, I’m my life partner. Yes, I think so. I think I’ve heard it before.” Colbert suggested he start it, and his guests “jump in” later in the performance.

“Yes, of course I will,” exclaimed the singer – who has won multiple Grammy Awards since his debut in 2003 – with the pair later continuing to perform the song.

Colbert sings the intro: “Oh, that was 1778. I wish I were in Sherbrooke now. A letter of invitation from the King for the most scum urn I’ve ever seen.”

Bublé then joined the presenter in singing the lyrics, although he was obviously not too familiar with some of them, as he happened to read parts of the songs.

However, he was able to get through it and seems to have invested throughout, with him even bringing harmony. Colbert said it was “an honor”, after it was over.

Fans shared their views after the performance, with a YouTube post saying it gave them “goosebumps”.

Another teased: “[Bublé] certainly don’t know the lyrics “However, others were impressed that he did the song, with one writing:” Good on [him] to improvise the same. “

“I think my life is done now,” said another. While a quarter said: “The slum has a big smile [to my face]. Another wrote: ‘What a wonderful duet of a sea slum. “

Later on in the show, Bublé – who had just announced that his wife, Luisana Lopilato, 34, was expecting their fourth child – took to the stage to perform two songs.

He performed Make You Feel My Life – originally by Bob Dylan, 80 – and Crazy – originally by Willie Nelson, 88 – which are among the songs on his new album, Higher.

Higher will be released next Friday (March 25).
