Adele BBC special: Singer will perform new tracks from '25'

Posted on

Adele is ready to release more songs from 25. The BBC announced Tuesday that the British singer would perform in an hour-long special on BBC One, which will be broadcast in November. According to the network, she’ll perform brand new tracks and songs from her previous albums. She’ll also sit down with Graham Norton for an interview.

Called Adele at the BBC, the special will be her first televised appearance since she performed the Bond theme “Skyfall” at the 2013 Academy Awards.

“This is the music event of the year and I’m thrilled to be part of bringing it to BBC One. This opportunity to spend an hour with Adele, her music and her stories is a truly rare treat. If I wasn’t hosting this special I’d be sat at home watching it!” Norton said in a statement.

“The BBC has been wonderful to me over the years and Graham and I get on great so it’s going to be a laugh,” Adele said.

Last week, Adele released “Hello,” the first single off 25, and her first song since “Skyfall.” The track’s music video, directed by Xavier Dolan, toppled Vevo’s record for most single-day views with 27.7 million plays. “If ‘Hello’ is in any way a hint of the quality of the new record, it’s going to be stellar,” Dolan told EW in a recent interview.

Fans can register to attend the recording, which will be taped Monday, Nov. 2, via BBC’s website.
