Judging by the previews, I don't think I'm going to be too keen on Angels in Chains... but it's nice that she felt inspired to write a tribute for George Michael & that she's donating the proceeds to Childline (a charity close to George's heart).

It's being released via East West Records UK (Warner).

Artwork:



It's unclear at this point whether she'll be going by Geri Halliwell or Geri Horner!


She's performing at G-A-Y the day after the single release, but she's just billed as "Geri" for it: https://s9.postimg.org/tsb5txavh/DCG_U_2_Xc_AAg1_KC.jpg

The single artwork's really nice. I agree that it wouldn't make sense her trying to be the solo artist she was back then now. EastWest are pretty safe hands anyway, they did The Corrs and Busted's most recent albums.

'Desire' is so underrated. sad.gif

When I think about it, the only one I truly hated was her abominable cover of 'It's Raining Men'.

He is reet tbh about worst solo material ... after Emma Bunton of course.

However, her songs are classic 90s moments and Ride It is an absolute JAM - loved it at the time and still do. Quirky and strange but a lot of fun. One of her best!

Oh god, I love Geri but she was good when she was doing her talk-sing pop stuff to cover her lack of vocal ability.
Hearing those three obviously very talented singers and then her piping up is kind of embarrassing for her, even with all things considered.

It's nice that she's doing this for charity but I don't think it'll make much money for it in the long run. She'd have been better off doing a book or something.

This can be pre-ordered on iTunes, and she's going with "Halliwell" for this release. heart.gif

The atrocity that was 'Half of Me' still haunts me so yesss Geri, let's move on from that kink.gif This is a lovely thing of her to do.

My Geri singles rank:

01) Mi Chico Latino
02) Calling
03) Desire
04) Look at Me
05) Ride It
06) Scream If You Wanna Go Faster
07) It's Raining Men
08) Bag It Up
09) Lift Me Up
10) Half of Me

'Mi Chico Latino' is comfortably her best for me and one of the very best solo Spice songs ('Never Be The Same Again' >>>> ofc)! Then 'Calling' was also a surprisingly striking slower moment from her too! 'Desire' is SO underrated, a shame that flopped so much. I like them all down to 'It's Raining Men', but then 'Bag It Up' never did much for me, her voice on 'Lift Me Up' (particularly the final chorus) is rather painful and 'Half of Me' was just totally a wtf moment :')

Release date now bought forward to this Monday, 19th June, where it will receive it's first play on (and I kid you not) Chris Evans' Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2. It quite literally is 1999 all over again! biggrin.gif

I really like this. It's a more mature Geri, but still has her stamp on it. Love a good gospel twang too.

Really didn't know what to expect from this. Surprisingly moving and lovely. Very fitting tribute to George. And dare I say it the best she has sounded on a slower number.
