Later…Live with Jools Holland will return on April 9 with guests including Suede and Cat Power.

The long-running music show will start its 42nd series with the first in eight half-hour live shows on BBC 2 at 10PM on Tuesday, April 9. Suede will appear to perform songs from their new album 'Bloodsports' while Cat Power will make a rare live appearance in the UK, playing songs from her 2012 album 'Sun'.

Meanwhile, newcomers Laura Mvula and The Strypes will also perform. The Strypes have won over celebrity fans including Noel Gallagher and Elton John with the former Oasis guitarist among the crowd that crammed into London's Old Blue Last on January 23 to catch the band, who have signed to Mercury. The Irish teenagers play energised takes on classic rock and R&B covers including Bo Diddley's 'You Can’t Judge A Book By It's Cover', T-Bone Walker's 'Call It Stormy Monday (But Tuesday Is Just As Bad)' and Muddy Waters' 'Mannish Boy' as well as their own original material.

A longer version of Later…Live with Jools Holland will air on Friday, April 12.
