Mel C has released a brand new single ‘High Heels’ featuring British LGBTQ collective Sink the Pink - and the results are every bit as fierce and fabulous as you'd expect.

Produced by Grammy-winning DJ Alex Metric and written by Mel C alongside Rae Morris and Fryars, the track sees Sporty Spice team up with her recent tour collaborators for a no-holds-barred celebration of queer love, self-love and community.

Mel, 44, teamed up with Sink the Pink immediately after the Spice Girls reunion shows came to an end this summer, promptly jetting to Pride celebrations around the globe and (quite literally) helping to fly the flag for the trans and non-binary community.

'High Heels' was first performed at São Paulo Pride in July, with Mel declaring afterwards in an exclusive interview with Attitude that she wanted to use the performance to show that LGBTQ people "have not been forgotten" in Brazil following the election of far-right presidnt Jair Bolsonaro earlier this year.

Debuting the video for the track on Wednesday, Mel said: “’High Heels' was inspired by the time I spent with my gorgeous friends at Sink The Pink.

“From the first moment I set foot in their fantastic club, I was blown away by the warmth and inclusivity of the atmosphere that had been created.

 

"It was a place where anyone could be themselves, whomever they were, while feeling completely relaxed about being so.

“'High Heels' is also a frivolous riot of a song, encapsulating an amazing night out and everything that goes into getting yourself ready for it!"
