She wrote on Twitter: "I'm incredibly excited to announce that my new, self titled album, "Melanie C" will be out on October 2nd.⠀

'Melanie C' is the follow-up to 2016's 'Version of Me' and the 'Northern Star' singer - who is known as Sporty Spice in the 'Viva Forever' group - recently teased that the LP is "informed" by her alter ego.
The 46-year-old singer explained how she wanted to acknowledge her Spice Girls persona because Sporty will always be a part of her, whilst she teased that the album is "empowering and fun".
She said: "I had this song going into the Spice shows where I was nervous about being Sporty again.
"But singing those songs in rehearsals I realised I am here, she is within me.
"It made me reflect on my life and inform this album.
