    If you saw the headline for this article and wondered if you were having a fever dream, you're not alone. However, it's real, and triple j presenter Lucy Smith has the video evidence to prove it.

    Movie star Idris Elba is currently in Australia filming his new movie Thor: Love And Thunder alongside Chris Hemsworth, Christian Bale, Natalie Portman and more, but he's taken time out of his schedule to hop into the studio with Lime Cordiale.

    They've written some music together, and the band performed the unreleased track at their Sydney show at the Enmore Theatre, so fans know what they've been up to following their huge album 14 Steps To A Better You.

    It's pretty normal for bands to perform unreleased music during their gigs. What isn't so normal, however, is an appearance from an A-grade actor during their set, rapping a verse from an unreleased song in all black (including a pair of shades).

    A wave of Hollywood actors have appeared in Australia in recent months, as major productions base themselves on Australian shores as a result of the global pandemic. 

    The Federal Government recently announced a $400 million package to bring movie productions to Australia, and while it's been controversial, it has indirectly resulted in this collab - so there's always a silver lining.

    Check out the footage from the show below. Honestly, we've seen some crazy things in the last 12 months, but we never could have predicted this happening. It's a strange new world we're living in, and we love it.
