It's hard to believe it has been 25 years since the Spice Girls dropped their debut single 'Wannabe' - and to celebrate, the girls have just announced they're releasing their first new song since 2007!

The ballad titled 'Feed Your Love' will feature on the Wannabe25 EP - which will be available to buy and stream from July 9 - and features all five original members on vocals as it was recorded in the '90s.

The album will also include the original version of the number one hit that launched Girl Power in July 1996, a remix of 'Wannabe' by Junior Vasquez and a previously unheard demo of 'Wannabe.'

'Wannabe' is the seventh best-selling debut single of all time, with more than 1.3 million CD singles and download sales, as well as being the longest-reigning number one by a girl group.

After their iconic 1996 debut single 'Wannabe' topped the charts in 37 countries, the 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.

Mel B, Emma Bunton, Mel C, Victoria Beckham and Geri Horner 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.

In 2019, the group reformed for the Spice World Tour minus Victoria, who made the decision not to rejoin the stadium shows.
