If you thought the subject of a Spice Girls reunion was off the radar for a good few years then think again. Following their London 2012 Closing Ceremony performance, Melanie C and Emma Bunton have recorded a duet together.
I Know Him So Well – a cover of the Elaine Paige and Barbara Dixon duet – will be released on 11 November as the first official single from Mel’s latest studio album, Stages.
The 90-second promotional video features Sporty and Baby Spice singing together in a studio around a grand piano, accompanied by a string orchestra:
And as if Spice Girl fans didn’t have reason enough to get excited, in the recording Mel is seen wearing a dress designed by her former band mate Victoria Beckham:

On her official website, Melanie said: “It’s been a while since we had been in a recording studio together but it was so memorable and enjoyable. I love Emma’s voice and hearing our vocals together again was very emotional for both of us.
“We adored every moment of recording our version [of the song] and I’m so grateful to Emma for making it happen, we hope everyone loves it as much as we do.”
The single will be available as a limited edition two-track CD, and fans will also have access to a special download bundle.
