Saturday Night Live has named D’Angelo as its musical guest for an upcoming episode in January.
The neo-soul pioneer will be joined by his band, The Vanguard, for their first televised appearance since releasing Black Messiah.
It’s likely, the tandem will recite tunes from the album that arrived abruptly, over a month ago.
This will be the first time D’Angelo has been billed as the musical guest for the sketch comedy show.
Next month, the soul singer will hit the Apollo Theater in Harlem, NYC before traveling to Europe to embark on the “Second Coming” tour.
SNL’s host will be J.K. Simmons. The episode airs January 31 at 11:30 EST on NBC.
