BBC One will host an hour-long show dedicated to that Sam Smith later this year. ‘Sam Smith At The BBC’ will see the musician perform songs from his new album with his band and the BBC Concert Orchestra, as well as chatting about stuff with Fearne Cotton.

“I’m so honoured and thankful to the BBC for giving me this opportunity to showcase some of my new music from my album in this amazing, intimate setting”, says Smith. “I can’t wait to sing some old songs and have a big old sing along with everyone”.

BBC Music Director Bob Shennan adds: “Placing music centre stage on television remains one of BBC Music’s aims as supporting a range of burgeoning and established acts, and I’m very happy that we’re able to bring Sam to BBC One for what promises to be a very special show”.

The recording of the show will take place at Elstree Studios on 17 Oct. You can apply for tickets here. Let’s just hope Smith doesn’t start banging on about UKIP.
