on March 19, 2014, 3:18pm

In less than a year, Sam Smith has gone from a relatively unknown vocalist on Disclosure’s debut album to Taylor Swift’s favorite artist. The UK crooner’s rapid ascent continues, as he’s just been confirmed as the musical guest for the March 29th episode of Saturday Night Live. He’ll appear alongside host Louis C.K.

Smith is gearing up for the release of his debut album, In the Lonely Hour, due out May 26th via Capitol Records.

The following week’s episode of SNL, April 5th, will feature Pharrell as musical guest, supporting his first solo album in eight years, G I R L. Anna Kendrick will host that night.
