Spice Girls' Spiceworld25 anniversary album: Release date, tracklisting, formats and Step To Me release confirmed

As Emma Bunton, Melanie C, Mel B, Geri Horner and Victoria Beckham ready a re-release of their iconic 1997 album, we're jumping to Planet Spice for a very special announcement.

Spice Girls have just announced Amid those rumours Spice Girls might be a good bet for Glastonbury 2023 (Melanie C has a 'good feeling' it may happen one day), the group have teased celebrations for the 25th anniversary of their Spiceworld album.

With November 2022 marking 25 years since the release of Mel C, Mel B, Geri Horner, Emma Bunton and Victoria Beckham's second LP, the girls have already suggested a 'Spiceworld25' release could be on the way.

As they unveiled a fancy 360 Wannabe lyric video in honour of the debut single's 26th anniversary earlier this week, the Spice Girls teased '#ByeSpice25 #HiSpiceworld25'.

And now, the girls' official website has updated with Spiceworld25 branding and a brand new take on that iconic '97 globe.

On September 1, the Spice Girls also posted an Instagram Story teasing said globe, complete with Scary Spice Melanie B's "What are we waiting for?" quote lifted from Spiceworld The Movie. Surely something's round the corner soon, right?

So, what could this mean for a possible Spiceworld25?

Check out everything Spice Girls' Spiceworld25 could involve below.

Spice fans will recgonise that several of the live tracks included here have never been officially released, and after decades of campaigning, an official version of Step To Me will finally be available on streaming.

For context for the uninitiated, Step To Me was originally featured in the Spice Girls' 1997 campaign for Pepsi and, despite featuring as a track on the Japanese version of Spiceworld, has never been officially released on streaming; bringing years of passionate fan campaigns to a happy end.

Another new track is the Spice Girls Party Mix - will we discover that the girls' hits have been remixed into as pleasing a megamix as those of Steps and The Saturdays?

What have the Spice Girls said about Spiceworld25?

In a statement, 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 travelling 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.”

Will Spiceworld: The Movie get a 25th anniversary re-release?

Speaking to OK! magazine about the prospect of an anniversary release, Melanie C teased: "Let's just say we're talking to Universal, the label that produced our first movie.

"You need to stay tuned to hear more. There will be big celebrations in the coming months, I can say that."

It was last celebrated with a 10th anniversary DVD edition back in 2007, but we're gagging for a new version with even more behind-the-scenes bits (and maybe that deleted castle scene, eh girls?).

What's this about a new Spice Girls documentary with The Last Dance director Jason Hehir?

Mel B has confirmed the group have 'just signed' a TV deal with the creator of Emmy-winning Michael Jordan documentary The Last Dance.

Speaking to Australian news outlet The Project, Mel revealed: "I told Dave [Hughes, fellow The Masked Singer Australia panellist when the cameras were off that we've signed our documentary to the guys that did The Last Dance, and he went and told the whole audience. I think I did say 'we've only just signed it, it hasn't been announced yet,' and then he told everyone."

Praising The Last Dance director, Mel added: "The director and the whole concept of how that was shot and filmed was really, really, really, really good; so we'll be doing our own version with them."

What did Melanie C say about the Spice Girls performing at Glastonbury?

After performing a cover of Spice Up Your Life with Blossoms at Glastonbury 2022, Melanie C recently claimed the festival's a 'dream' gig for the Spice Girls.

Hinting Posh Spice Victoria Beckham could even join the band on stage once again, Melanie told BBC Entertainment Correspondent: "It's the dream, the absolute dream, yeah, we would love to do it. You know what, the girls and I, we have chatted about it.

"You know, it's the biggest stage in the world, we have the best festival in the world right here."

So, would Posh be there? "Hmm, I have a good feeling," Mel teased.

Hai si ja, hold tight!
