Adele to Perform New Songs From ’25’ On BBC Special
Adele is heading to TV for the first time since her showstopping performance of “Skyfall” at the 85th Academy Awards.
The BBC announced today that Adele would perform in an hour-long special on BBC One this November. The performances will include new tracks from her new album, 25, which is due for release on November 20. In addition to performing new tracks and past hits, Adele will also have a sit-down interview with Graham Norton.
“This is the music event of the year and I’m thrilled to be part of bringing it to BBC One,” Norton said in a statement. “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!”
“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 added.
It’s been a big week for Adele, even without this major announcement. Her new music video, “Hello”, broke Taylor Swift’s record for most single-day views, earning 27.7 million views in its first 24 hours of release, which is enough to beat the previous record-holders, Swift’s “Bad Blood” (20.1 million) and Miley Cyrus’s “Wrecking Ball” (19.6 million).

However, it’s uncertain when the special will actually air, since BBC hasn’t announced a premiere date. Of course, BBC will want this out before the new album, so expect to hear some new tracks from 25 pretty soon. Personally, I can’t wait. I’m absolutely in love with “Hello”, and I’m absolutely thrilled to have Adele back.
