Adam Driver is wrapping up quite the year after numerous award nominations for Marriage Story and starring in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Halsey has had quite the year herself, which will only continue into 2020 with the release of Manic. She has already released five tracks on her upcoming album. The most recent being the emotionally moving “Finally // beautiful stranger”.

SNL made the hosting announcement during the most recent episode of the show and tweeted the below picture.

We certainly have a great show to look forward to from SNL on Jan. 25, 2020.

More Halsey 

Halsey’s newest album Manic is due on in a little under a month on Jan. 17 and the singer is dropping bangers. Halsey recently dropped two new singles “Finally // beautiful stranger” and her collab with BTS‘s SUGA, “SUGAs Interlude”.

“Finally // beautiful stranger” includes a powerful music video exploring the dichotomy of fame and love in an old-time club. Check them out below!

After revealing the tracklisting for Manic a few weeks ago, fans are in a frenzy to get every bit of content they can before Manic’s release. And it seems Halsey is more than willing to accommodate.

The singer dropped two new tracks including a video for one just two weeks ago. Check out the tweet from Halsey below.

“Finally // beautiful stranger” is a moving, emotional song that explores first love and the emotions it causes. Watch the beautiful video below.
