Joining Jools for the third show of this series are Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett's multimillion-selling creation Gorillaz, who are making their live debut on the show playing tunes from their latest acclaimed album Plastic Beach, with a host of special guests.
Laura Marling, who at 20 has already seen herself compared to Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell, is playing songs off her remarkable new album I Speak Because I Can. From Athens, Georgia, comes the band Drive-By Truckers, who have southern soul quite literally in their blood. The six-piece are performing a tune or two from their new album The Big To Do.
The multi-talented Mos Def is also in the studio, to play a number from his incredible The Ecstatic album as well as possibly joining in with one of the other acts. Making her UK TV debut is Michigan-born Diane Birch, who has been causing a stir in the US with her album Bible Belt over the last few months. And jazz legend Bobby McFerrin performs a number from his new VOCAbuLarieS album.
