In April, Willow made her Saturday Night Live debut when she joined Camila Cabello for a performance of “Psychofreak.” Last night, the 21-year-old gave her first proper solo performance on an episode hosted by actor Brendan Gleeson, during which she played “Curious/Furious” and “Ur a Stranger.” Following the second song, Willow smashed her guitar through an on-stage TV.
Both of those songs are drawn from Coping Mechanism, Willow’s fifth studio album, which was released on Friday (Oct. 7).
Beyond Coping Mechanism, Willow is in the midst of a very busy stretch. She was scheduled to open for Billie Eilish on her Happier Than Ever tour before pulling out due to production constraints. She also released Lately I Feel Everything in 2021, which featured appearances from artists like Travis Barker, Avril Lavigne, Tierra Whack, Cherry Glazerr and Ayla Tesler-Mabe.
Last week, Kendrick Lamar kicked off SNL‘s 48th season with a three-song set. Next week, Megan Thee Stallion will be on double duty as both the host and musical guest.
