The land of Fillory might be lacking in magic these days, but the mystical realm from SYFY’s The Magicians is still a very musical place, apparently. The dark fantasy will be debuting its own musical episode later this season, and we have the first details on what show tunes Quentin and the gang will be belting.

Vanity Fair reports the ninth episode of the current season, airing March 7, will feature a total of four songs from the talented cast. It’s not the first time the series has dabbled in using a bit of singing and dancing, but it’s by far the biggest swing yet. The episode will feature covers of “All I Need is the Girl” from Gypsy, plus a cover of David Bowie and Queen’s “Under Pressure.” The cast members participating run the gamut, including Hale Appleman, Jason Ralph, Olivia Taylor Dudley, Jade Tailor, and more.

The Magicians, based on Lev Grossman’s book series of the same name, has slowly been building its world into one of the wildest, darkest and oftentimes hilarious shows on television. It’s also dabbled with musical numbers, too, as mentioned above. The character Quentin rocked out to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” back in Season 2, and Season 2 had part of the cast jam “One Day More” from Les Misérables.

The Magicians airs Wednesdays on SYFY.
