No, the music man hasn’t offered himself up as a corpse for the CBS franchise.

Instead, Josh Groban will play himself in a special Valentine’s Day episode for CSI: NY. Groban will tickle the ivories in a scene that will serve two purposes: It’ll give the procedural a little star power, while providing Groban a chance to promote his upcoming album “All That Echoes,” that will be released Feb. 5 on Reprise Records.

In the episode, Groban will perform “Happy in My Heartache” in a restaurant.
