After two decades of depriving Saturday Night Live audiences of his assless chaps, Prince will take the SNL stage on Feb. 4. Steve Martin will be hosting for his record-making 14th time. The last time Prince played SNL was back in 1981, right after Dirty Mind and Controversy had been released. Prince’s appearance will be in support of his new album, 3121, which comes out March 21. The first single from 3121, “Te Amo Corazon,” was released back in December. The single is available through Prince’s own digital music distribution outlet, the NPG music club.
