For one night next week, Prince is leaving the comforts of Paisley Park for Arsenio Hall’s house.

It was announced yesterday (Feb. 27) that the Purple One will appear on the March 5 episode of the Arsenio Hall Show.

But Prince isn’t just appearing on the show, he’s taking over. He reportedly will perform multiple songs from his over 35-year career. He’ll also sit down with the host to talk about what he’s got coming up in 2014. Let’s hope he gives away his secret pancake recipe and finally explains why it is breakfast, the most important meal of the day, can wait.

To announce Prince’s upcoming appearance, the singer sent a letter carrying clone to Arsenio’s studios. Because clearly, Prince does not send out press releases. The clone let Arsenio know that Prince will be coming by next week. He wrote that he wanted to welcome Arsenio back to late night, especially since the host has always been so kind to him.

Prince promised it would be a performance Arsenio would never forget. “Just incase you haven’t heard,” Prince wrote. “I’ve been practicing and I’ve gotten pretty good now.”

This will be Prince’s second TV appearance this year, following his butterfly-filled appearance on New Girl. We’re still hoping he’ll just stop by one day and give us love advice.
