Smith added: "We are grateful to Spotify for their generous support and willingness to present a live performance with all its possibilities of risk and revelation."
Smith is the latest artist to partake in Spotify's Live at Electric Lady EP series, which was announced in July. The series will also feature releases from Bleachers, Japanese Breakfast, Faye Webster, Dominic Fike, Jon Batiste and more.
