The BBC has announced a series of special programming centred on Stormzy.

BBC Music’s A Stormzy Special, features the musician in conversation with 1Xtra and Radio 2 DJ Trevor Nelson and performing live from Abbey Road Studios.

In the 45-minute entertainment special filmed in the iconic studios, Stormzy sits down with Trevor Nelson for a candid chat where he opens up about making his third studio album, his rise to fame, success and his growth both personally and professionally. He will also perform three tracks from his new album ‘This Is What I Mean’ plus two songs from his back catalogue.

A Stormzy Special will broadcast on BBC One on Tuesday 15 November. It is produced by BBC Studios, the Executive Producer is Alison Howe and it is directed by Janet Fraser Crook. It was commissioned by Jonathan Rothery, Head of Pop Music TV for BBC Music.

Trevor Nelson says: “I first interviewed Stormzy in 2014 for his debut Live Lounge at 1Xtra and I haven’t interviewed him since then. When I met him he was the hottest new MC in the UK and now he has become a cultural icon. I’m really looking forward to hosting this show and to being able to chat to him once again.”

There will also be special programming on Radio 1, Radio 2 and 1Xtra celebrating Stormzy, his music and his connection with each station’s audience.
