Last September, Machine Gun Kelly released his most recent album, Tickets to My Downfall, which found the musician, best known as a rapper, fully embracing pop punk. Bridgers, meanwhile, earned wide acclaim for her 2020 record, Punisher, which helped her pick up four Grammy nominations, including Best New Artist. Back in February 2020, Rateliff released his first solo album since 2013, And It’s Still Alright, while more recently he penned the single, “Redemption,” for the upcoming Justin Timberlake-starring drama, Palmer.
Saturday Night Live has two additional episodes scheduled for February 20th and 27th, though hosts and musical guests have yet to be announced.
