Musician Kid Cudi is taking over music responsibilites on Comedy Bang! Bang! as Scott Aukerman’s new co-star once Reggie Watts, the IFC show’s current bandleader, leaves for The Late Late Show.

Watts, who’s been starring on the show ever since it made its television debut in 2012 (Comedy Bang! Bang! was originally—and still is—a podcast), will be the bandleader for The Late Late Show once James Corden takes over hosting duties this March.

Kid Cudi’s gig will kick off July 10—but first, he’ll guest on the show Feb. 20. “When he was on the couch,” Aukerman said in a statement, “I knew he had charisma and star quality, but I thought he should move slightly camera right. Plus, my wife and I have been trying to have a kid for several years, and this is the next best thing.”
