Driver previously hosted SNL twice—in 2016 and in 2018—while their show together in January will mark Halsey’s third appearance as musical guest on SNL. In February, she was both host and musical guest of SNL. She made her SNL musical guest debut in 2018 and made a cameo during Lil Wayne’s set on the series.
Halsey’s SNL performance will come just a week after the release of her third studio album Manic which comes out January 17th. The 16-track record will feature guests including Alanis Morissette, BTS’ Suga and rapper Dominic Fike.
In her Rolling Stone cover story, Halsey revealed that the album she’s about to release, Manic, is “the first I’ve ever written manic.” She said the LP is a combination of “hip-hop, rock, country, fucking everything — because it’s so manic. It’s soooooo manic. It’s literally just, like, whatever the fuck I felt like making; there was no reason I couldn’t make it.”
