This week sees the 25th anniversary of The Spice Girls first hit Wannabe. Originally released on the 8th July 1996 it debuted at No 3 in the U.K. chart before hitting No 1 the following week and then doing the same in 37 countries around the world notching up 2.03 Million sales, going on to become the 7th best selling debut single of all time.
As part of the celebration, an anniversary edition of the song, Wannabe25, will be issued on a picture disc EP and on cassette, featuring the original song, a remix by Junior Vasquez, the previously unreleased original “Wannabe” demo recording and a demo of a previously unreleased ballad penned by “Wannabe” co-writers Richard Stannard and Matt Rowe, “Feed Your Love”; the EP will be available for streaming on July 9 and physically on July 23rd.
