Madness will release a new U.S.-only compilation titled Our House: The Very Best of Madness on March 12 that showcases the highlights of the U.K. pop-ska veterans’ 40-year-plus career.

The 12-track collection features the band’s 1979 ska classic “One Step Beyond…,” plus the band’s two biggest U.S. hits, “Our House” and “It Must Be Love,” which peaked at #7 and #33 on the Billboard Hot 100 — and at #5 and #4 in the U.K. — in 1982 and 1981, respectively.

The compilation also features several other songs that reached the top 10 of the U.K. singles chart, including “Baggy Trousers,” “Embarrassment,” “Wings of a Dove,” “Night Boat to Cairo” and the #1 hit, “House of Fun.”
