A new trailer has been released for Adele‘s forthcoming CBS special ‘One Night Only’, featuring the singer speaking to Oprah Winfrey.

The broadcast will feature Winfrey’s interview with the star, as well as footage from an intimate gig at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles.

“It will look really elegant, and then I’ll tell a load of filthy jokes and stand up. It’ll be a real whiplash for them,” Adele tells Winfrey in the short clip.

The trailer also features a brief snippet of footage of Adele singing ‘Rolling In The Deep’ live, and speaking onstage as she promises both old and new material.

When first announced, it was promised that the interview will mark “Adele’s first televised wide-ranging conversation about her new album, the stories behind the songs, life after divorce, weight loss and raisinig her son,’ with the conversation taking place in Oprah’s ‘rose garden’.”

The full show will be broadcast on CBS this Sunday (November 14) at 8.3opmET/8.00PT, five days before the release of Adele’s massively anticipated fourth album ’30’.

In the UK, meanwhile, a concert film titled ‘An Audience With Adele’ will air on ITV on November 21. The special show will include a performance from Adele recorded at the London Palladium to a specially invited audience of family and friends, as well as Adele’s “own personal heroes and heroines, fellow musicians, artists, actors, sportsmen, sportswomen and more”.

Fulwell 73 Productions is producing both specials. Ben Winston from the company wrote on Instagram: “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.”

These televised specials will also give fans an idea of what to expect when Adele plays two concerts in Hyde Park next year.
