Joining Jools on the final show of this series is Jamaican legend Jimmy Cliff, who returns with his first album in seven years, Re:Birth, produced by Rancid frontman Tim Armstrong. Jimmy performs from the album along with one of his classic reggae tunes.

Also in the studio, originally from Portland, Oregon, Esperanza Spalding, who sensationally won the Best New Artist award at the Grammys in 2011, making her the first jazz artist to win the award. She now makes her UK television debut with tracks from her acclaimed Radio Music Society album.

Rockin' Swedish quintet The Hives make a long-awaited return to the show, with numbers from their brand new Lex Hives set. East London songstress Paloma Faith performs a tune from her second album Fall to Grace at the piano, and dreamy pop synth duo Beach House, consisting of French-born Victoria Legrand and Baltimore native Alex Scally, make their television debut with songs from their acclaimed fourth album Bloom.

Completing the line-up is Nottingham-born singer-songwriter Jake Bugg, who is 17 but is writing songs beyond his years, being influenced by the likes of Donovan and Dylan.
