la comédie divine

As previously reported, The Divine Comedy will unveil their new album, "Bang Goes The Knighthood" on May 31. It will be available as a standard, single disc as well as a limited edition double CD set.

The limited edition will include the album plus a bonus disc featuring material from The Divine Comedy’s now legendary shows at Cité de la Musique from 2008.

Neil Hannon, for he is TDC, was asked to cover his favorite, French songs en français. You will be able to hear the results of his efforts on the bonus disc! The tracklisting is still to be confirmed, but is expected to feature around ten songs.

Here are two classiques français from that show - "Joe Le Taxi" by Mrs. Johnny Depp, aka Vanessa Paradis, and "Poupée de Cire, Poupée de Son" by the legendary Serge Gainsbourg. Thankfully, someone lovingly recorded them and swiftly uploaded them to YouTube. Huzzah!
