Listen to Spice Girls' new version of 'Say You'll Be There' below.
British pop girl group Spice Girls have announced the re-release of their debut album for its 25th anniversary. Spice25 will be available October 29.
The deluxe edition of the 1996 album will include two CDs inside a hardback book, featuring bonus track and b-sides. Apple will release a remastered version of the album with Dolby Atmos sound, and vinyl and cassettes are also available here.
From the upcoming re-release, Spice Girls have shared a version of 'Say You'll Be There' with a new saxophone solo. Listen to the track below.
Members of the group have shared their thanks for fans as they celebrate their 25th anniversary.
"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," said Mel B.
"All I hope – 25 years on – is that message has been heard loud and clear," she continued. "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!"
Geri Halliwell also thanked fans and said, "It's been 25 years of pure magic. Spice Girls forever!"
The group–comprised of Mel B, Halliwell, Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, and Melanie Chisholm–celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2016 with a reunion party. Since then, there's been talks of another reunion, and earlier this year they shared their previously unreleased track, 'Feed Your Love.'
Following the release of Spice in 1996, Spice Girls appeared on the cover of Hot Press in 1997. Revisit the iconic cover story here.
