Margot Robbie and The Weeknd to appear on ‘Saturday Night Live’ season premiere

Abel Lesfaye books first promo appearance for new album 'Starboy'

Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie and The Weeknd have been booked for the season premiere of Saturday Night Live.

The Harley Quinn actress will host the opening episode of the show’s 42nd season, while The Weeknd will be the show’s musical guest. It airs on NBC on October 1, a week on Saturday.

This will mark The Weeknd’s third appearance on the show following previous stints as the musical guest in 2014 and 2015. It comes after the singer-songwriter unveiled the title and artwork of his new album ‘Starboy’ on Twitter earlier this week, followed by the title song, a collaboration with Daft Punk. The cover features a photo of the singer/songwriter shot by photographer Nabil Elderkin.

‘Starboy’ is the follow-up to 2015’s ‘Beauty Behind The Madness’ which included hit singles ‘Can’t Feel My Face’, ‘In The Night’ and ‘The Hills’, plus ‘Earned It’ from the Fifty Shades Of Grey soundtrack.

According to iTunes, the album is expected to drop on November 25. The iTunes listing also reveals one other track title from the album, which is ‘False Alarm’. Listen to ‘Starboy’ with Daft Punk below.
