Emma Bunton today announces her highly anticipated brand new album ' My Happy Place', which will be released via BMG on 12th April 2019.

Spice fans can rejoice, as 'My Happy Place' is a brand new collection of 10 Emma songs that she has recorded over the last two years, all produced by pop maestros Metrophonic.

The first song from the album 'Baby Please Don't Stop' is released this Wednesday February 27th. Written by Emma with Paul Barry and Patrick Mascall, the song is a storming sixties influenced smooth pop classic, which is sure to delight Emma fans across the globe.

Emma has duetted with a selection of music’s finest on the album. She collaborates with Robbie Williams on a brand new version of the Spice Girls smash '2 Become 1', with Will Young on 'I Only Want To Be With You', Josh Kumra on 'Come Away With Me' , and her very own Jade Jones on 'You're All I Need To Get By'.

The album features two brand new original songs co-written by Emma herself including 'Baby Please Don't Stop, plus 'Too Many Teardrops', which is another slice of sensual sixties pop.

Emma says: “The reason I called the album ‘My Happy Place’ is because my happy place is with my family, with my friends, listening to music and being in the studio. All those things came together on this album. While recording it my kids came to the studio, my friends came down, my mum listened to every song over and over again. Being in the studio I just feel so happy.

As you get older you feel more confident because actually your priorities change, and my family have become my focus, but this album is like the icing on the cake. Being able to write, record and perform is definitely that extra sprinkle of magic”.

Emma has sold over 85 million records as a member of the all conquering Spice Girls, the most successful female pop group of all time. As a solo artist she has had seven UK Top 10 hits and two UK Top 10 albums.

Deluxe cd has same amount of tracks as standard album, weird. Will definitely pre order in some format not sure which yet though. Shame it's mainly covers but to have anything new at all is great.

It looks like a very ambitious well put together campaign just a pity it's eight covers on a ten track album. That's very disappointing.

I'm in two minds over what to order. I'd like the deluxe album. My inner collector is screaming for the cassettes and standard CD too though! I am supposed to be selling off my collection not adding it it huh.gif

I just pre-ordered: Deluxe CD, 2 Cassette, signed photo & Standard CD.
I would have preferred to have the signed CD to the signed photo.
I hope she will be signing copies of her new album in HMV stores in april.
I hope a cd single with b-sides (like Melanie C)

I can see why there are so many covers she is taking advantage of the reunion buzz, it is not like she has had time to complete a full new album campaign.

I agree. It's no coincidence that she's got two songs featuring the word 'Baby' either. Might work well for promo opportunities around the tour.

I'm thinking just standard CD for me. The deluxe is just extra packaging and I cant play cassettes. The lack of vinyl release is annoying.

The album is exactly what I expected covers for the Asda mums with Robbie and Will roped in to help convince 50 year old mums to buy it. I get why she has done it and the label probably insisted on it.

The 2 new songs sound like a bone thrown to the spice fans and gays.

I actually expect this to be very successful, we will be very close to the spice tour by then so people will be hyped. I wonder with the right promo and a slow week if she could bag the first solo spice top 3 album.

Totally agree on the vinyl! This is screaming out for a pink vinyl version. Expecting this to be big too - the gays will ensure it charts well in the first week with the bundle purchases and Emma is happy to be everywhere so will likely be on any show that will have her on.

I am not fully happy for a cover album but at the end of the day I am happy for new Emma music.
The record company did a good job with the physical bundle. The cost is ok not expensive.

At the moment the album is #2 on Itunes Uk pre-order.

I think it will do incredibly well, the 25 bundle is the internet gays dream, its camp as Christmas. The regular CD will sit nicely on Sainsburys shelf and the pink will stand out.

Streaming might actually be better than expected too if Robbir and Will fans stream out of interest as well as casual Spice fans.

Provided she has good promo first work, loose women, the one show, heart breakfast, radio 2, This Morning I'm sure this will have a great first week peak.

She and the record label have done a decent job off pleasing everyone in some way.
