This SNL appearance will be Adele's first major outing in four years following her 2016 tour. The British star is also yet to release any new music since the release of her 25 album in 2015.

"I've always wanted to do it as a standalone moment, so that I could roll up my sleeves and fully throw myself into it, but the time has never been right. But if there was ever a time for any of us to jump head first into the deep end with our eyes closed and hope for the best it's 2020 right?"

Adele shared this snap ahead of her appearance on SNL

"It'll be almost 12 years to the day that I first appeared on the show, during an election... which went on to break my career in America, so it feels full circle and I just couldn't possibly say no!"

Of the guest performance H.E.R, Adele added: "I am beside myself that H.E.R will be the musical guest!! I love her SO much I can't wait to melt into a flaming hot mess when she performs, then confuse myself while I laugh my [explicit] off in between it all. See you next week."
