Possibly one of the great action movies never to get released, 'Threat Level Midnight', features on Billie Eilish's new album.
Billie Eilish has today released her debut album 'When We All Go To Sleep, Where Do We Go?'. The album title refers to the sleeping condition that Eilish suffers from. In an interview with Zane Lowe, the singer said she’s always had night terrors, and lucid dreams - even sometimes predicting what will happen the next day.
The album features 14 tracks, and one track in particular makes a definite nod towards one of America's best TV shows. Track nine, 'My Strange Addiction', features audio clips taken from 'The US Office' episode 'Threat Level Midnight', where office manager Michael Scott debuts his action movie project to his colleagues.
Michael's movie, which took 11 years to complete, follows the hectic life of secret agent Michael Scarn. After getting over the death of his wife, Catherine Zeta-Scarn, he must try to stop his nemesis, Goldenface, from blowing up another All-Star game. President Jackson says that Scarn is the only man for the job.
Billie Eilish it turns out, also appreciates this episode of 'The US Office', so much so that she's put audio from the episode into her latest track. Here is 'My Strange Addiction', which has Michael Scarn speaking about no longer doing "The Scarn Dance" anymore.
If you're a fan of Billie Eilish, the singer is set to play Ireland at this year's Electric Picnic. Other artists on the bill include Florence & the Machine, Hozier, The 1975, and James Blake and many others.
And just because it's Friday, here is Michael Scarn doing said Scarn Dance.
