"Who would've thought it? It's crazy to think that 25 years have passed."
The Spice Girls have announced that a new, expanded version of their second album, Spiceworld, will be released in November to celebrate the album's 25th anniversary.
Curated by the band themselves, the new expansion of Spiceworld brings together the original chart topping album with some of their favourite bonus tracks and B-Sides, along with previously unreleased live recordings from the Virgin Records archive.
Looking back on their original release, the Spice Girls said "The Spiceworld era was such a fun time for us; We'd just had a number one album with Spice, we were traveling all over the world and meeting our amazing fans, we released our second album AND we had our very own movie! Who would've thought it? It's crazy to think that 25 years have passed."
In addition to the album's original ten songs - including the hit singles Spice Up Your Life, Too Much and Stop - the new expanded release, Spiceworld 25, will feature old demos, new remixes and unreleased live recordings and tracks including the much-anticipated ’Step To Me’. The album will be available in multiple formats including digital deluxe, 2CD with a hardback book, picture disc vinyl, clear vinyl, 2LP deluxe, and double cassette's.
