Michael Bolton's Big, Sexy Valentine's Day Special, a variety show intending to "get people in the mood to make love," according to a press release, will premiere on Netflix on Tuesday. 

Along with the Grammy-winning singer, the program will feature special guests, including the Lonely Island's Andy Samberg and Jorma Taccone, Sarah Silverman, Fred Armisen, Maya Rudolph, Casey Wilson, Chris Parnell, Eric Andre, Michael Sheen and Randall Park, Entertainment Weekly reported.

Bolton had previously collaborated with the Lonely Island on the song and video "Jack Sparrow," which was featured on Saturday Night Live in 2011. 

"That is the gift that keeps on giving," Bolton told Stephen Colbert on The Late Show about the video. "I love comedy, and the 'Jack Sparrow' event opened the doors for me to do some production and do the 'Valentine's Day Special.'" 

The special will be directed by Scott Aukerman and Akiva Schaffer and will consist of a series of "absurdist adventures," according to a press release

Bolton also duetted with Colbert on a romantic melody about Groundhog Day.
