As my favourite of the Spice Girls, I've always had a thing for Melanie Chisholm, known to fans simply as Mel C. That is why I, for one, am excited about the news that she is to release her sixth album on October 21st.
The album titled Version Of Me has been created with the help of Melanie C's longtime co-writers Adam Argyle and Peter Vettese, together with London production duo, Sons Of Sonix, who have worked with Tinie Tempah and Ariana Grande, among others.
Speaking about the album, Melanie C says:
"I wanted to make an album that I would listen to now,. I’m not a left-field artist, I never will be. I write pop songs, but my aim this time was to approach every aspect of them differently, to be more creative with structure and sounds. Whatever felt right, I went with."
Recorded in LA, Version Of Me is easily the most impressive of Mel's solo releases, which began with her album Northern Star in October 1999. The first single from the collection, "Anymore", will be released today and showcases just how much she's developed and grown as an artist during her many years in the industry.

After the Spice Girls split, Mel C first enjoyed chart success in the UK after teaming up with renowned Canadian rocker Bryan Adams for the song "When You're Gone" in 1998, which I used to love playing air-guitar along to (I wasn't the only one, right?!)
