George Ezra is set to appear on CBeebies‘ Bedtime Story – and has compared the booking to being “right up there with Glastonbury”.
Ezra released his new album ‘Staying At Tamara’s’ back in March. Reviewing the record, NME said: “Ultimately, it’s this blend of new-found maturity and crowd-pleasing choruses that transform Ezra’s second offering into the perfect progression from the sound of his debut”.
Ahead of a packed tour schedule this summer, the singer will take on Children’s TV – reading Here Comes The Sun by Karl Newson on June 1.
Ezra is the latest artist to be booked to appear on the 10-minute show, following in the footsteps of Sir Elton John, Guy Garvey and Dolly Parton.
“It was an absolute honour and a pleasure to be invited to read a CBeebies Bedtime Story and follow in the comfy-slippered footsteps of all the greats that have gone before me,” George says.
He added: “All my friends with kids are mad for the show, so now, in their eyes, I’ve finally made it.
“This is right up there with Glastonbury, the Live Lounge and the Graham Norton Show.”
Last year, Josh Homme’s Bedtime Stories episode was cancelled following an incident that saw him kick a female photographer.
Meanwhile, it’s been announced that George Ezra will play a huge show at Wembley’s SSE Arena in November. Find tickets for his upcoming tour here. Shows are also scheduled for O2 Academy Newcastle and Glasgow’s Barrowlands.
