A few weeks after Gary Clark Jr. stormed the internet with his searing indictment of American racism, "This Land," the Austin guitar great has been confirmed to perform as the musical guest on "Saturday Night Live" on Feb. 16. It will be Clark's first appearance on the sketch comedy show, and host that evening will be actor Don Cheadle.

Clark and his family have also been tapped as faces for the new "Indivisible" campaign from fashion designer John Varvatos.

"This Land" is the title track from Clark's new album, his first since 2015. The album is due out on Feb. 22.
