'What Took You So Long?' is released in April - but NME.COM lets you know where you can hear it...

SPICE GIRL EMMA BUNTON has recorded her debut solo single entitled ‘WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG?’, which will be released in the UK in April.

In an e-mail to the official Spice Girls mailing list, Bunton describes the track, the first release from her “almost finished” debut solo album as “a really tuneful feel-good song…the sort that really sticks in your head as soon as you’ve heard it”.

Fans who log in to her new website, [url=], on February 14 will be able to hear the track and post their comments. The website is currently under construction.

The video for the song is being shot in LA over the next couple of weeks, and it is anticipated that clips from the track will also be made available via her website when it is finished.
