This week, Jools chats to global superstar Ed Sheeran ahead of the release of his fifth studio album entitled =. Ed describes the album as his “best piece of work” and a “coming-of-age record”. Jools will be chatting to Ed about the new record, as well as asking him to choose his favourite performances from the Later… archive, which include the debut performance from KT Tunstall, Skepta and Seasick Steve.

Also on the show and making her debut is Manchester-born singer-songwriter, Pip Millett, who has taken the UK by storm with her chilled, emotional fusion of R&B and soul. She will be performing the song Hard Life from her Motion Sick EP at the atmospheric Victoria Baths, also known as Manchester’s Water Palace.

Completing the line-up are unique performances from two British groups making a return to the show: Oxford indie-pop group Glass Animals, fresh off another hugely successful US tour, perform their new track I Don’t Wanna Talk (I Just Wanna Dance), from the legendary Studio 2 at Abbey Road. Plus, Scottish rock trio Biffy Clyro perform their current radio smash, A Hunger In Your Haunt, from their upcoming ninth studio album The Myth Of The Happily Ever After. Their performance was filmed in Glasgow.
