Victoria Secrets To Exclusively Sell The Spice Girls: Greatest Hits


The Spice Girls: Greatest Hits, which features 13 of the best-selling British girl-group's chart-topping smash singles, will be available for purchase only in Victoria's Secret retail stores and on the company's website in the US beginning November 13th, 2007, just a few weeks before the Spice Girls begin their highly anticipated sold out world-wide reunion tour on 2 December.

Customers can also pre-order the album for a period of 24 hours between midnight on 17th October and midnight on 18 October at www.victoriassecrets.com. Further cementing the Spice Girls partnership with Victoria's Secret, the group will make their reunion television debut at
this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, airing December 4th at 10/9c on
CBS.

In addition to 13 of the Spice Girls smash hits, such as "Wannabe" and "Say You'll Be There," Spice Girls: Greatest Hits contains two brand-new songs, "Voodoo," and the Girls' upcoming single "Headlines (Friendship Never Ends)," their first new single since 2000's double A-side "Holler / Let Love Lead the Way."

As a special bonus, the CD available at Victoria's Secret also includes 3 downloadable bonus remixes: "Wannabe," "2 Become 1," and "Spice Up Your Life." Capitol Music Group will also release a CD/DVD deluxe edition, which includes a DVD featuring all of the Spice Girls promotional videos, and a gift box version, which includes the aforementioned CD and DVD, a karaoke disc, and a gift bracelet on 15 January 2008. Spice Girls: Greatest Hits will be available nationwide on 15 January. Until then, the CD version that includes 3 downloadable bonus
remixes will be available exclusively at Victoria's Secret in the US.

You would think with them selling out so many of their shows in the UK, there would be something similar to this for the UK market, but Simon Fuller more focused on the US.

"The quality and enduring popularity of the Spice Girls hits have proved that their appeal crosses generations, as well as stretching around the world. The tickets for the North American tour sold out in a few seconds and we are adding more dates. I am delighted to be working with Victoria's Secret on the Greatest Hits album and welcome their innovative approach to marketing," said Simon Fuller.

The full track list is as follows:

"Wannabe" / "Say You'll Be There" / "2 Become 1" / "Mama" / "Who Do You Think You Are" / "Move Over" / "Spice Up Your Life" / "Too Much" / "Stop" / "Viva Forever" / "Let Love Lead The Way" / "Holler" / "Headlines (Friendship Never Ends)" / "Voodoo" / "Goodbye"

Oooh. Maybe I'll get some special or something since I work at Victoria's Secret hah :)

I'm not so sure about the idea of only selling it through them though. They should sell it there AND other places, because I know a lot of people aren't going to go to VS just to get a CD that will probably be really highly priced. Not a good idea unless I'm reading it wrong...

The UK promotional schedule has not been revealed fully yet, but apparently there will be a 'golden ticket' prize hidden in selected Greatest Hits. I think the fact the UK gets the box-set and CD/DVD in Novemeber (as opposed to January like the US) is an advantage itself. And those 3 remixes will be on the Headlines single.
