Joining Jools on the show this week are two very different acts who formed at the end of the 1970s and went on to take completely different musical paths. Since their beginnings in Birmingham's club scene, Duran Duran have gone on to sell over 100 million records and recently released their 14th studio album Paper Gods, which saw the likes of Mark Ronson and Nile Rodgers on production duties. They will be performing a couple of tracks from it plus one or two of their classic pop hits. On the other side of this musical coin are John Lydon's post punk originators Public Image Ltd., who return to the show to play tracks from their recent 10th studio album What The World Needs Now.... From LA comes contemporary alt-R&B loverman Miguel, who will be performing a couple of numbers from his third studio album Wildheart, which has been described as 'a record with moments of pure, solar heart' and in an R&B context 'songwriting with a sex-positive message'. Canadian singer-songwriter and a founding member of alt-country trio The Be Good Tanyas, Frazey Ford makes her solo debut on the show with songs from her third album, the acclaimed Al Green/Memphis style collection Indian Ocean. Completing the line up, from London, 2015 breakthrough act Wolf Alice will run through a couple of tracks from their hit debut LP My Love Is Cool. Plus North London's Simbi Ajikawo, otherwise known as Little Simz, who's has garnered praise from the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Jay Z. She performs a track from her debut album A Curious Tale Of Trials + Persons which has been described as melodic, jazz-inflected soul-hop to near-spoken vocals over downbeat sonic washes.
