Haim and Katy Perry will serve as musical guests on Saturday Night Live's ongoing 42nd season. The Haim sisters will perform on the May 13th episode hosted by Melissa McCarthy, and Perry will follow on the May 20th episode with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
Saturday Night Live announced the bookings Wednesday with a Twitter photo featuring the show's line-up on a cork board. The image also confirms the May 6th episode, featuring LCD Soundsystem (in their SNL debut) alongside host Chris Pine.
Though they've yet to confirm a release date, Haim have cryptically promoted a follow-up to their 2013 debut LP, Days Are Gone, throughout April. Earlier this week, the indie-pop trio teased the album with the second of two trailer clips – including a snippet of Danielle Haim playing unaccompanied drums; pictures of the band were recently featured on billboards throughout London, Berlin, L.A. and Sydney, Pitchfork reports.
Haim recorded their new album at Days Are Gone producer Ariel Rechtshaid's Silver Lake studio, where they continued to "[combine] organic and non-organic sounds."
"On the first record, we were really obsessed with mixing the two in a way where you couldn't tell if a snare was real or a sample," Danielle told Rolling Stone. "We still love that, but this time we came at it from a more organic, rock standpoint. Because when we play live, we realize that ultimately, we're a rock band."
