Melanie C releases hugely-anticipated, self-titled album available today

Melanie C’s hugely-anticipated self-titled album is released today. Already being hailed “her best work” (The Guardian), the record was launched alongside four, full-band global live stream events this week – ‘Colour And Light’ – and continues a whirlwind of activity for Sporty Spice…

‘Melanie C’ contains the acclaimed singles ‘In And Out Of Love’, ‘Blame It On Me’, ‘Who I Am’, a recent collaboration with Nadia Rose (‘Fearless’), and more future-classics from an artist undoubtedly reaching a new peak of her pop powers.

Beneath its floor-filling euphoria, ‘Melanie C’ also soundtracks a deeper sense of growth and self-acceptance that the modern icon has undergone whilst making the record An artist who’s at home presenting her friend Billie Eilish with a BRIT Award as she is lending her vital voice to the modern discourse on depression, body positivity, and the LGBTQ community, Melanie C’s trailblazing influence has never been more apparent than it has on her new music. With collaborators ranging from Nadia Rose, Shura and her longtime Spice Girls ally Biff Stannard to remixes from the likes of Joe Goddard, few contemporary acts would be as at home doing all this as they would be performing under lockdown for ‘The Late Late Show With James Corden’, or putting together a specialist DJ mix for i-D Magazine.

With over 100 million records sold and multiple BRIT, Ivor, Billboard and Olivier Awards under her belt, ‘Melanie C’ nonetheless has the feel of the album of her career (and the story of her musical life). It is, too, a glorious new chapter for Girl Power.

‘Melanie C’ is available digitally, on CD and on vinyl both in standard edition and as x2 deluxe CD edition with bonus tracks, exclusive coloured vinyl, and special limited deluxe vinyl with exclusive 12” singles. Previewed by her ‘Colour and Light’ album launch show this week, Melanie’s 2021 headline tour dates are detailed below. All live shows and album formats are available now via https://melaniec.net/.
