Julian Casablancas has a new, virtual gig.

The Strokes frontman will be hosting a radio show inside the Grand Theft Auto Online video game. The station, dubbed K.U.L.T. 99.1 Vespucci Beach, “Low Power Beach Radio,” will feature Casablancas spinning tracks by artists including Joy Division, Danzig and The Velvet Underground.

Additionally, Casablancas will be premiering a new song called “Alien Crime Lord” — recorded with his side project The Voidz — during the radio show.

Casablancas’ station will be added to GTA Online as part of the upcoming The Cayo Perico Heist update, which launches December 15.

The Strokes, meanwhile, released their new album The New Abnormal back in April. It’s nominated for Best Rock Album at the 2021 Grammys.
