Saturday Night Live is going to get a little electronic for the fifth episode of its 41st season. On Thursday (Oct. 22), the NBC show announced that its Nov. 14 episode will feature musical guest Disclosure featuring Sam Smith and Lorde alongside host Elizabeth Banks.
SNL announced that Disclosure will be performing on the Nov. 14 episode on its Twitter account. Later, the duo itself confirmed that they wouldn't be bringing along canned performances of its singles "Omen" and "Magnets." Sam Smith and Lorde will also be on hand to sing their new tracks live.

Disclosure is playing SNL following the release of their latest album Caracal, which was released on Sept. 25. In addition to Smith and Lorde, the album also features new songs with The Weeknd, Miguel, Kwabs and more.
This will be Disclosure and Lorde's first performances on Saturday Night Live. Meanwhile, Sam Smith is an old pro. He previously performed on the show during its 39th season with host Louis C.K.
The band is just the latest to take the Saturday Night Live stage. Other musical guests thus far on season 41 have included Demi Lovato, The Weeknd and Miley Cyrus. Sia is also slated to perform on SNL on the Nov. 7 episode with controversial host Donald Trump.
