In a new performance space at the recently restored Alexandra Palace Theatre, Jools is joined by Isle of Wight duo Wet Leg, who rose to prominence last year and recently released their critically acclaimed number one debut record. They are returning to the show after performing their viral hit Chaise Longue last autumn.

Jools is joined by rock‘n'roll legend Liam Gallagher, who performs a couple of tracks with his band from his forthcoming album C'mon You Know and an exclusive bonus track for BBC iPlayer. Liam also discusses a performance by Jimmy Cliff he has chosen from the Later... archives, as well as revisiting his debut on the show with Oasis from 1994.

Jools welcomes a brand new collaboration consisting of Academy Award-nominated actress and singer Jessie Buckley and Brit Award-winning producer and ex-Suede guitarist Bernard Butler, who perform a couple of tracks from their forthcoming album, a collection of 12 mesmerising new songs entitled For All Our Days that Tear the Heart. They chat to Jools about their collaboration and their choices from the Later… archives of performances by Leonard Cohen and Paul Buchanan.

Jools welcomes Londoner Koyej Radical, who after a decade of releasing EPs and projects returns to the show with songs from his debut album Reason to Smile. He also swaps fashion tips with Jools and selects Joy Crookes from the Hootenanny archives.

Leicester's finest, Kasabian, return with a couple of songs from their forthcoming album The Alchemist's Euphoria, co-produced with Fraser T Smith. It's a record that frontman Serge Pizzorno describes as one that 'really holds up in our seven albums - the Magnificent Seven', which is inspired by his recent listening to everything from Kanye to old 70s cuts.

Returning to the show after an eight-year break, we welcome back Scottish singer-songwriter Paolo Nutini, who performs songs from his upcoming fourth studio album Last Night In The Bittersweet, a record that saw him write over a hundred songs during its making.

Making her debut on the show is Bristolian breakthrough artist Katy J Pearson, who is inspired by the likes of Kate Bush and Fleetwood Mac and performs Talk Over Town from her upcoming second LP, which is co-produced by PJ Harvey collaborator Ali Chant and producer of the moment Dan Carey.

Jools welcomes Florence + The Machine, who recently returned with her fifth album, Dance Fever, her fourth to reach number one. She performs a couple of songs and chats to Jools about the inspirations behind it, including a medieval phenomenon known as choreomania. She also picks and discusses a performance by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds from the Later... archives.
