Two-time Melodfiestivalen participant Ulrik Munther has released his new single ‘C’est la vie’ (It’s life), which he co-wrote with the Swedish Grammis nominated musician Johan Eckeborn.
To coincide with the release of his latest single, Ulrik has released a lyric video for C’est la vie. Within the video, we see footage of Ulrik’s childhood life.
About C’est la vie
During the release of his latest single, Ulrik has shed more light, on what the song is about, and the reflection of his childhood.
As kids we look up to adults. But as an adult, I find myself more and more inspired by kids. They are honest with their emotions, they ask for help when they need it and they’re not afraid to try. Their minds are open and their perspectives are constantly changing.
I can’t talk for everyone, but I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in feeling boxed in sometimes. Like it’s hard to change because I keep looking at my history. Telling myself that is who I am and feeling pressured to defend it, instead of letting it go and moving on.
I think the world would be a better place, and people would be much happier if we didn’t define ourselves so much by our history, but rather by our willingness and ability to listen, learn and engage.
Life is constant change. You can either fight it or go with it. C’est la vie.
