Bill Nye's new Netflix show has attracted yet another star: Tyler, the Creator is on board to create the theme song. Bill Nye Saves the World, which will premiere April 21, is already set to feature appearances from supermodel and social entrepreneur Karlie Kloss, and slightly less famous faces like comedians Joanna Hausmann and Nazeem Hussain.

In a promotional clip, Tyler admits he was a fan of Nye's 90s show Bill Nye the Science Guy as a kid, favorably remembering it made kids not hate science class. He actually used the original theme as his reference. Tyler explains, "the first one is really sick. I love the fast-paced-ness of it. If you take out that snare, it could be a house song," to a visibly wrapt Nye.
