Australian artist Gotye will make his "Saturday Night Live" debut as the musical guest on Saturday, April 14.

The "Somebody That I Used to Know" singer will play songs off his critically well-received album "Making Mirrors." The show will be hosted by Academy Award-nominee Josh Brolin.

Gotye's single “Somebody That I Used To Know,” which has been on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 10 consecutive weeks, has over 119 million views on YouTube.

Only in the past few months has Gotye begun to invade the U.S. pop music charts. In Australia, "Somebody That I Used to Know" sat atop the singles charts for eight weeks, making it the highest charting song there since Savage Garden's "Truly Madly Deeply" in 1997.

It's also hit number one in New Zealand, Ireland, and Austria. In Poland, it stayed at No. 1 for a record 16 weeks, and his album was declared platinum after only one day.

Gotye kicks off his sold-out Spring tour in March, leading up to his first U.S. festival appearance at Coachella.
