A Spice Girls reunion? Nope, still not happening yet. Though they reunited briefly for a musical and London 2012’s Olympics closing ceremony, we just can’t get enough of them.
But today, devotees of Girl Power may need to prepare themselves for the onset of a panic attack because we have just been given the greatest gift of the world in the form of Soundcloud: the release of the never-before-heard songs from their 3rd and final album, “Forever”.
“Forever” received mixed reviews from the critics and it did not sell as well as their previous 2 albums. However, more than 5 million copies were sold worldwide and it was certified Platinum in UK for selling over 300,000 copies.
“Forever” is also their only album without Geri Halliwell, who announced her departure from the group in 1998 due to differences between them and the exhaustion from touring around. Halliwell’s departure from the group shocked the world and the news became one of the biggest entertainment news stories of the year. Thus, Halliwell’s vocals were not featured in the new tracks that were left unreleased for the past 15 years.
The unheard tracks were uploaded to Soundcloud and they are said to be the demos from “Forever” because it includes an alternate pop version of “Right Back At Ya”, a song that appeared on the 2000 record. As for the remaining 3 songs, they may not be the songs that would become the smash hits but they are most certainly going to be the songs that you can’t and won’t stop listening to.
Check out the songs below (the original Soundcloud links have been removed):
“A Day In Your Life”
“Right Back At Ya”
“If It’s Lovin’ On Your Mind”
