Adele will also sit down with Oprah Winfrey to launch 30.

Adele: One Night Only is a two-hour special which will be broadcast on US network CBS on November 14.

The 33-year-old will sit down with Winfrey in the chat show host’s rose garden, where she conducted her headline-grabbing interview in March with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Adele has shared the 12-song tracklist for 30, revealing songs called I Drink Wine, Strangers By Nature and Love Is A Game.

Both An Audience With Adele and Adele: One Night Only are being produced by British company Fulwell 73 Productions.

Founder Ben Winston wrote on Instagram: “In my home to London to make this.. I grew up loving ‘An Audience With’ specials on ITV – so to be coming back to London to produce this, with a one of a kind artist – the incredible @adele , is literally a dream come true.”
