Recording and releasing a full cover album of Taylor Swift's 1989 seems to have been a big career boost for Ryan Adams. Just days after dropping his new LP, the 40-year-old rock star was announced as the first ever musical guest on Trevor Noah's new version of The Daily Show.

On Wednesday (Sept. 23), Comedy Central announced the first week lineup for Noah's The Daily Show, which kicks off on Monday, Sept. 28. The political commentary show, which has always been a mixed bag of guests, will continue that tradition under Noah's reign.

Adams will take the show on Thursday, Oct. 1, as the lone guest. He's set to sit down for an interview with Noah and will also offer up a performance, according to Consequence of Sound. It's unconfirmed whether Adams will be performing one of his many, many original songs or if he will be offering up a cover of Swift's.

However, this will be Adams' first late night talk show since he announced and released his version of 1989.

Adams isn't the only person lined up for The Daily Show, though he is the only musician. The show is set to kick off with Ride Along star Kevin Hart on Monday (Sept. 28). Other guests during Noah's first week include Whitney Wolfe of the female-centric dating app Bumble and republican presidential primary candidate and New Jersey governor Chris Christie.

Noah takes over The Daily Show from longtime host Jon Stewart, who stepped down from the program earlier this year.
