Father John Misty and Lorde will play SNL in March

February 24, 2017

Saturday Night Live announced their musical lineup for their upcoming shows in March, and those who tune in on March 4 will get to hear the musical stylings of Father John Misty. Then, on March 11, Lorde makes her return to the SNL stage while details surrounding her new album are swirling around the internet.

Father John Misty recently announced a new record and released the first song, "Pure Comedy." The record (also called Pure Comedy) is due out April 7 via SubPop. Lorde's last album, her debut, Pure Heroine, was released way back in 2013, but the rumor is her second album is completed and could be released March 7, but details are still sparse. A second album is coming, though. The only question is when.

Hosting SNL on March 4 will be Oscar nominee Octavia Spencer, nominated for her role in Hidden Figures, a film about the United States’ first space mission, as NASA's first African-American manager. Scarlett Johansson will host March 11 when Lorde takes the stage.
