18 January 2021, 16:19 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Jorja Smith has launched a new BBC Radio 3 show series called Tearjerker, which sees her explore the healing power of music.

The "Come Over" singer launched her Tearjerker show last Saturday (16 January) with two one-hour-long episodes, the first featuring string-inspired music, and the second sees her present her favourite piano pieces.

Smith shared news of her new Tearjerker BBC Radio 3 show on socials today (18 January), writing, "I’m presenting a new show called Tearjerker on BBC Sounds full of music u can escape to."

According to Radio Today, Tearjerker is a 12-part series.

Smith said of the series, "It’s important to try and find time to just let go and let music take you to a different place. I hope the music in my new series – from strings and piano to songs and soundtracks – will help you whatever you’re feeling, bring out different emotions and make you feel a little better. Presenting it made me feel a lot more relaxed too."

Tearjerker isn't the only new BBC Radio 3 show launching this month, as Celeste will premiere her first episode of Downtime Symphony this Saturday (23 January).

The first two episodes of Jorja Smith's Tearjerker show are available on now.
