Good news to all Spice Girls fans! The girl band is set to release a special 20th Anniversary vinyl of their third studio album, Forever, on Nov. 20, 2020.

This is a pleasant surprise for the fans of the most successful girl band in the world. The album is now available for preorder and hopefully, it will be shipped just in time for the Holiday season.

The Forever album features the number one hit songs Goodbye, Holler and Let Love Lead the Way. Spice Girls fans who grew up in the '90s might find this album a sentimental and bittersweet one, or a welcome change to the sound of the girls during that time.

In this album, only Melanie B (Scary Spice), Melanie C (Sporty Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) and Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) worked on it. Geri Halliwell, a.k.a. Ginger Spice, infamously left the Spice Girls in May 1998 which broke the hearts of many young fans worldwide – mine included.

Looking back, the foursome released Goodbye as a tribute to their dear friend Geri when she decided to leave the group to take a break and later on pursue a successful solo career. It is a bittersweet track that can still make a devoted fan cry. It was released in December 1998.

Holler showcased a sexier sound for the Spice Girls. The girls embraced a mature R&B sound which was considered a risk back then. The music video was slick, sexy and funky with the girls representing the four elements. If this song is released today, it will still top the charts.

The second single from the album is Let Love Lead the Way is a sweet, inspirational song that they sing to a girl whom many believe is their ex-bandmate Geri. When this single was released, Geri already launched her first solo album (Schizophonic) and the members of the Spice Girls were also working on their solo projects.

Other standout tracks from the album that can help spice up your quarantine life while dancing are Tell Me Why, Right Back at Ya, Get Down with Me, Wasting My Time and If You Wanna Have Some Fun. If you want to slow down, listen to Oxygen, Weekend Love, and Time Goes By.

Here’s the Forever album Track list:

The Spice Girls reunited in 2019 for the UK Spice World Tour. The lineup included Melanie B, Melanie C, Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell-Horner. Victoria Beckham begged off due to prior commitments.

With the 25th Anniversary of their first No. 1 hit single Wannabe fast approaching, a lot of fans are hoping that the group will reunite once more – with all five original members. We can only hope for now.
