Whitta made the announcement on Twitter and during his wrap-up of season one of the show, which aired Friday morning.
Shaggy, the reggae artist known for hits like “It Wasn’t Me” and “Angel,” is scheduled to join the show for the debut of its second season on June 1 to perform new music he is currently working on, Whitta said.
Sting, the former frontman for The Police and a solo act since the mid-80’s, will be joining Animal Talking on June 8 to similarly debut new music.
“It’s pretty nutty, and I’m excited about where we’re going to be going,” Whitta said on the show. Whitta didn’t give any major details beyond those dates, so make sure to keep an eye on his Twitter feed for details.
The two legendary musicians join an increasingly star-studded guestlist on Animal Talking. Season one of Whitta’s show has already included film stars like Elijah Wood, Danny Trejo, and other musicians like T-Pain. The show has also featured some familiar faces from the video game industry, like Double Fine’s Tim Schaefer, Cliff Bleszinski, and Naomi Kyle.
Whitta hosts the show alongside band leader and game developer Adam Nickerson.
