Playback stuck as built-in output!! [SOLVED]

So i've recorded some intro music for my podcast, now i want to record and intro vocal over the top. the issue is that the playback comes out of my macbook speakers and is therefore picked up by my desktop mic! I have headphones plugged into my Blue Yeti desktop mic, my sound settings on the mac are set to input and output as this mic, but the playback dropdown in Audacity doesn't give me the option to add this mic i just get built-in output or Airplay. Please help! Thanks

Transport > Rescan Audio Devices to see the Yeti. Audacity does not automatically detect devices you plug in after Audacity is already running.

Amazing, thank you. Don't know why that answer was so hard to find, life saver (slightly dramatic)!
