Mescal, who is currently filming psychological drama God's Creatures in Donegal. has released a track called Black To The Bed, which will feature in Thunder, the episode of Black Alley starring the Kildare actor.

Thunder premieres on June 15th and the synopsis reads, "It's a cold and stormy night. One by one, a gang of robbers arrive back at their den. When their chief arrives, he explains that he’s hidden the score. He’ll take them out individually to give them their cut. Which means most of them will have to wait.

"Stories are told, songs are sung. But this gang is more than a bit impatient. Because there’s more than one plan afoot. How do you avoid being bitten in a pit full of snakes?"

Springheel Productions describe the new series as, "A new anthology fiction podcast, starring some of the biggest names in Irish film and television. Each episode is a standalone story, which takes place in an interconnected universe of crime, eccentricity, and truly awful people."

The Young Offenders stars Chris Walley and Alex Murphy will also appear on Black Alley

As well as Mescal, the series will also feature Meadhbh Maxwell (Normal People), Chris Walley and Alex Murphy, (The Young Offenders), Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (Love/Hate), Niamh McCann (Brooklyn), Eanna Hardwicke (Vivarium), Frank Blake (Game of Thrones) and Peter Coonan (Dark Lies The Island).
