As Consequence of Sound reports, Ocean will appear alongside host Seth MacFarlane, creator of ‘Family Guy,’ and he’s not the only first-rate artist prepping for the ‘SNL’ stage.

Following Ocean’s performance, Mumford and Sons swing by studio 8H on Sept. 22, three days ahead of the release of their new album, ‘Babel.’ Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt hosts. Two weeks later, on Oct. 6, it’s Muse‘s turn, as the epic British rockers hit ‘SNL’ to offer some tunes from their new album, ‘The 2nd Law,’ which will have dropped the previous Tuesday.
