Jack White is returning to Saturday Night Live.

The White Stripes/Raconteurs/Dead Weather rocker will perform solo on the long-running NBC sketch show for on February 25. Having previously been the musical guest four times — solo in 2012, 2018 and 2020, and with The White Stripes in 2002 — White will officially join SNL‘s five-timers club during the episode.

During White’s last SNL performance, he played a guitar designed by the late Eddie Van Halen, who’d died just a week prior, during a rendition of his 2014 song “Lazaretto,” as well as a medley of his Beyoncé collaboration “Don’t Hurt Yourself,” The White Stripes’ “Ball and Biscuit” and Blind Willie Johnson‘s “Jesus Is Coming Soon.”

This time around, White will likely be playing material from the two solo albums he released last year: Fear of the Dawn and Entering Heaven Alive.

Actor Woody Harrelson will host the SNL episode and will become a five-timers member himself following his previous hosting gigs in 1989, 1992, 2014 and 2019.
