The Weeknd will light up Saturday Night Live with his new song “Starboy.”

Abel Tesfaye dropped his album title track without warning late Wednesday night, and less than a day later is announced as the headlining performer on the upcoming season of SNL with host Margot Robbie on Oct. 1. Not a bad 24 hours for the smooth singer (despite the drama with his headlining gig at The Meadows music festival in NYC that same day. Long story short: there was a scheduling conflict at first, but after some finagling, he’s still performing).

We’re back next weeknd! #SNL
