The Spice Girls are celebrating the 25th anniversary of their iconic debut album, Spice. To commemorate the big event, they will release an extended edition, Spice 25.
Spice 25 Will Featured Two Previously Unreleased Songs
Spice 25 is out on October 29, almost exactly 25 years after the release of their debut album on November 4, 1996. The collection includes the album’s original 10 songs, plus previously unreleased demos and mixes. Also, it includes two previously unheard songs, “One Of These Girls” and “Shall We Say Goodbye Then?”
Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) said, “From the first wannabe baby steps to conquering the whole world with a team of Spices, thank you doesn’t seem enough to all of you who have supported us, followed in our footsteps, walked in our great big shoes and who have shared our dreams. It’s been 25 years of pure magic. Spice Girls forever!!!”
Geri Horner (Ginger) commented, “To our diehard and loyal fans; without you, there is no us – sending endless love and gratitude. Whoever you are, whatever your dreams – live them, be them. The Spice Girls motto is testament to that.”
The Spice Girls Are Excited About The Re-Release
Melanie C (Sporty) shared, “25 years, wow! I have so many wonderful memories of writing, recording, promoting, and touring this album and so many people to thank. This is the record that set us off on our incredible journey. A huge thank you to our fans and family all around the World. Thank you for always being there with your unrelenting support and making our dreams come true. My love and gratitude always.”
Melanie B (Scary) expressed, “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!”
Victoria Beckham (Posh) added, “We couldn’t let 25 years pass without thanking the fans for their incredible support. There are so many people who have played a part in the success of the Spice Girls throughout the years, you know who you are and we thank you.”
