Speaking on the breakfast television show GMTV this morning (July 11), Mel C was talking about her collaboration with rocker Bryan Adams on the song ‘When You’re Gone’, and asked if she would ever consider working with J. She replied: “I respect what he does, people don’t realise how talented he is. It’s like with the Spice Girls, they’re all very different musically and he’s a very talented guy.
“If circumstances changed and we were just buddies then I’d probably work with him…(but) because he produces, maybe he’ll produce my next record, that’ll save a bit of cash, and then he can buy me dinner!”
Also in the interview, Mel talked about the new Spice Girls album, which she revealed was almost complete and would be released in November. The band are expected to finish promotional photos in the next few weeks for the album, which has a working title of ‘Third Time Around’.
Following the interview, Mel performed her new single, ‘I Turn To You’, which is released on August 7 through Virgin. The single will feature remixes by Hex Hector and Stonebridge.
