The Spice Girls will release an EP around the 25th anniversary of their debut single Wannabe , Billboard reports Monday. The record includes a remix of their popular hit, as well as the previously unreleased song Feed Your Love .
The ballad is the first song written and recorded for their debut album Spice, but the song would have been seen as too challenging for their target audience at the time. That is why it was decided not to add the song to the album.
Instead, the band members co-wrote Wannabe with Richard Stannard and Matt Rowe , which became the band’s lead single.
A fragment of Feed Your Love already leaked in 2016 , but the song will be listened to in its entirety for the first time on July 9. The song is featured on a special EP to commemorate Wannabe ‘s 25th anniversary (released July 8, 1996). The EP also contains two remixes of the single, plus the demo version.
The Spice Girls are also planning to celebrate Wannabe ‘s anniversary with a new tour, they said earlier. However, due to the corona pandemic, no concerts have been booked yet. As on their previous tour, Victoria Beckham will stay home. The other four members Melanie Chisholm, Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Melanie Brown will participate.
The girl group was formed in 1994 and broke up in 2000. After that, the singers got together again a few times. The Spice Girls last released a single in 2007: Headlines (Friendship Never Ends) .
