Spice Girls reunite for 25th anniversary expanded debut

Spice 25 will be available Oct 29th

Spice Girls are reuniting for the 25th anniversary of their debut album via Virgin/EMI. Curated by the Spice Girls themselves, Spice 25 brings together the original chart topping album with some of their favorite bonus tracks and B-sides, along with previously unreleased recordings from the Virgin archives. A collection rich in highlights, the album includes their four UK No. 1 singles as well as a variety of remixes.

The 2 CD set comes in an A5 hardback booklet, with a collection of iconic images plus brand new messages from the girls. The CD also includes a set of six Spice Girls postcards, featuring photographs by Tim Roney, taken in Paris in September 1996. The album will come in a number of other formats, including a Zoetrope picture disc and limited edition colored vinyl and cassettes (containing the audio from the original album only), with each Girl having a specific color that corresponds across both vinyl and cassette editions.

The full original album has also been recreated in Dolby Atmos/Apple Spatial Audio which will be available on Apple Music the same day. Dolby Atmos is a revolutionary, immersive audio experience that goes beyond the ordinary listening experience and puts you inside the song in a spatial way, revealing every detail of the music with unparalleled clarity and depth.

The labels are also releasing “Wannabe,” a new four song EP, on 12″ picture disc vinyl. Alongside the original single and demo version is a remix by Junior Vazquez, originally a bonus track on the “2 Become 1” CD single. Also included is “Feed Your Love,” a ballad written by the Spice Girls and “Wannabe” co-writers Richard “Biff” Stannard and Matt Rowe. It was originally recorded for the Spice album, but previously unreleased.

After their iconic 1996 debut single “Wannabe” topped the charts in 37 countries, Spice Girls’ debut album Spice went on to sell more than 31 million copies worldwide, becoming the best-selling album of all time by a female group. The girls have gone on to sell more than 90 million records around the globe, releasing three studio albums and 11 singles and winning a host of awards including a BRIT Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music.
