Gary Clark Jr. has played on many stages but hasn’t made an appearance on NBC’s Saturday Night Live — until now. The bluesman will join the long list of illustrious musicians to grace the SNL stage on February 16.
The episode, which airs one day after his 35th birthday, will lead up to the release of his upcoming album This Land. “Major birthday gift,” Clark wrote in excitement on Instagram. The LP is set to drop on February 22 via Warner Bros. Records and will feature the jarring title track and “Feed the Babies.” He performed both stirring tunes on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last month.
Following the release of This Land, Clark will take the introspective work on the road for his spring tour. The world tour kicks off on March 9, in Miami. Tickets are available on his official website.
