Madness teases new song 'C’est La Vie’ with dramatic reading from Helen Mirren

Madness has teased new song 'C’est La Vie’ with a dramatic performance by Helen Mirren.

In a video released today (September 27), the Oscar-winning actor sings his own rendition of the song directly into the camera.

„C’est La Vie’ has long been a prime suspect as our first single in 7 years,” the ska-pop band captioned the video. „It seemed only right to ask Royalty to proofread the lyrics for us without even hearing the song…”

Life begins at five to eight / No time to waste it will not wait” begins the lyrics. „A lay-in yesterday / Up and fighting them.”

The chorus then has the French-speaking lyrics „I didn’t do that, that’s life / I didn’t do that, that’s life„.

Madness’ 'C’est La Vie’ is out tomorrow (Thursday, September 28).

Watch the video below.
