Japanese singer and songwriter Kenshi Yonezu will play an in-game Fortnite concert Aug. 7, the next in a growing line of artists to do so. All players who play Fortnite between Aug. 6 and 8 p.m. ET on Aug. 8 will receive a free banner to celebrate the event.

Yonezu will play singles from his fifth album, "Stray Sheep," which is set for release two days before the in-game performance. He will also play songs from his four other records stretching back to 2012. The performance will be broadcast three times Aug. 7, starting at 7 a.m. ET and reoccurring at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. ET.

The banner Fortnite players unlock incorporates the central image from the cover of "Stray Sheep," which shows a man in a mask made of animal bones and gems. The banner makes the image black and white and places it in the center of a disco ball-adorned blue to orange gradient.

Previous Fortnite in-game performances have featured appearances from Travis Scott, Diplo, Young Thug and Noah Cyrus.
