Fender, 23, who won the Critics’ Choice Award at the Brits earlier this year, is set to release his debut studio album.
Chris Price, head of music at Radio 1 & 1Xtra, said: “The Radio 1 Live Lounge continues to set the global standard for live studio performance.
“Intimate and exposing, it’s still the best way to get close to your favourite artists, as well as discover new ones.”
The performances take place on Clara Amfo’s show between 10am and 1pm, Monday to Thursday.
They can be heard live on Radio 1 and BBC Sounds, and will be available to watch on demand on Radio 1’s BBC iPlayer and YouTube channels.
