The episode will mark Styles' fifth appearance on SNL. He performed as a member of the boy band One Direction in 2012, 2013 and 2014, and appeared solo in 2017.

One Direction has been on an indefinite hiatus since December 2015. Styles released his debut solo album, Harry Styles, in May 2017, and shared a music video the new single "Lights Up" this month.

Styles appeared to tease a new song in a tweet Tuesday that referenced his song "Kiwi."

"Kiwi walked so Watermelon Sugar could run," he wrote.

Styles' One Direction band mates are also busy with their solo careers. Louis Tomlinson shared a music video for the single "We Made It" on Thursday, while Liam Payne will release the album LP1 in December.
