Mel B will release new material this year in a deal with EMI Australia, she has announced on her official website.
"I’m overly excited to finally announce this amazing global partnership deal back home with EMI Music," she remarked. "I know I have mentioned doing music in the past but for legal reasons I was not in a position to release any new music. For my fans, I am happy and proud to say my music WILL be heard this year… Love me or hate me, Scary Spice is back, hahahaha!!!"
Mel's last album, 'LA State Of Mind', peaked at Number 41 in the UK.
The news comes as Australia's Sunday Telegraph report that she has said she "would love to become" a citizen of the country, where she currently has roles as the host of Dancing With The Stars and as a judge on The X Factor.
