Prince is bringing his legendary presence to the Saturday Night Live stage, as he is set to perform on the sketch show on November 1! Comedian and former SNL cast member Chris Rock will also return as the night’s host. This marks Prince’s third appearance on the show, and his first since 2006.

The entertainer took to his newly formed Facebook page to announce the news, which came with a hilarious photo of Chris Rock dressed in classic Prince garb. This all comes after the September 30 release of not one, but two albums from the musician – his 33rd (!!) studio LP, ART OFFICIAL AGE, as well as the debut LP from his band 3rdEyeGirlPLECTRUMELECTRUM. Read on to see the funny Facebook post.

Since the release of his albums, Prince has performed with Kendrick Lamar on stage as well as giving fans a preview of his upcoming collaboration with UK singer Rita Ora.
