MUMBAI: Adele fans may get a preview of the singer’s highly anticipated, third studio album ‘25’ much before its actual release date on 20 November. The Grammy winner is set to perform a BBC special show titled 'Adele at the BBC', this November, it was announced by BBC Music. The hour-long special will be hosted by popular Television personality and host- Graham Norton and will revolve around the British singer's life, career and music.

Accompanied by her live band, the singer will, for the first time perform few of the songs from her upcoming album, along with some of her classic tracks on the show. Adele has not performed on live television since her performance on the night of the 85th Academy Awards in February 2013.

The relationship between Adele and BBC goes back to her early musical days, when the singer made her debut television performance on ‘Later With Jools Holland’ on BBC Two in 2007. The 'Someone Like You' singer first appeared on the network's Radio 1 show with Reggae Yates.

The Academy Award winner, who turned 27 this May, released a single titled 'Hello' from her upcoming album on 23 October. Since the release, the track's popularity has spread like wildfire, making it the 'most viewed song in a day', 7 million more views than the previous best- Taylor Swift's 'Bad Blood'.

Speaking about the programme, Adele says, "I can't wait for the show. 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."

Graham Norton seemed excited with the unique one-off concept that celebrates one of Britian's finest talents. “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!” said Norton.

The dates for the show have not yet been released, but we expect one of the most anticipated returns to live up to its expectation.
