"New Spice Girls single HEADLINES leaks"


The new Spice Girls single "Headlines" was leaked on the internet yesterday – weeks before the planned release.

The girls' label EMI called in legal eagles to get the audio recording taken off YouTube. But Sporty, Posh, Ginger, Scary and Baby kindly let me have the first full listen to the track yesterday.

And I can reveal it is classic Spice ballad material in the style of "2 Become 1" – their No1 from 1996. Mel C has the biggest solo in the song, with the other girls providing the breathy chorus.

The single will be aired today on Chris Moyles' breakfast show on Radio 1. The song, which will be this year's 'Children In Need' charity single, is released online on November 5 and in shops on November 19.

The girls' Greatest Hits album is out on November 12.

** On a personal note, I heard the track on the net, and while it is well produced, it's rather boring. Perhaps the second single will be an uptempo jam. - Ace:)

totally agree.... nice track and nicely-produced, but perhaps it's the lyrics that kill it
