NEW ALBUM: SPICE GIRLS | SPICE (25TH ANNIVERSARY / DELUXE EDITION)
To celebrate 25 years since the release of their 1996 debut album, Spice Girls have stopped a deluxe edition featuring the smash singles “Wannabe,” “2 Become 1,” and “Say You’ll Be There” and is the best-selling album in music history by a girl group and one of the best-selling albums of all time. The 2CD set includes the original album and bonus tracks and B-sides taken from the hit singles, plus a selection of many remixes commissioned for the singles and additional previously unreleased demos. Speaking about the anniversary, Mel B said: “All I ever wanted was to be accepted and to make everyone around me – gay, straight, brown, black, shy or loud like me – to feel they can celebrate who they are and to be free to be themselves. “All I hope – 25 years on – is that message has been heard loud and clear. It’s true that in the end, love IS all you need, so I thank everyone who has ever bought a Spice Girls record or stood in the rain to greet us or got dressed up in pink, in a tracksuit, a ginger wig, a leopard-print catsuit or put on Vic’s iconic pout!” Earlier this year, a previously unheard Spice Girls song, "Feed Your Love," was released as part of an EP to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their debut single "Wannabe." After their iconic 1996 debut single “Wannabe” topped the charts in 37 countries, Spice Girls’ debut album "Spice" sold more than 31 million copies worldwide, becoming the best-selling album of all time by a female group.
