Spice Girls fans unite, because the girls are releasing their first song since 2007.

Feed Your Love—a previously unreleased bop—will be available to stream and buy on 9 July. And it's all to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the world's best girl band.

Feed Your Love will appear on the upcoming Wannabe25 EP, which will feature three different versions of 1996 smash hit Wannabe, as well as the unreleased track, Feed Your Love.

The ballad never made it onto any of the other albums due to its risqué nature and even features vocals from Victoria Beckham, who recently revealed a Pride Month surprise for fans.

Feed Your Love was written by Richard 'Biff' Stannard and Matt Rowe—the minds behind Wannabe. 

As well as releasing brand new music for the first time since 2007, the band—comprising of Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Geri Horner, Mel C and Mel B—have also launched their brand new #IAmASpiceGirl campaign.

The movement is designed to encourage fans to reflect back on their own lives during the Spice Girls days, before sharing their stories to be featured on the band's social media channels. 

And all the excitement was too much for some Spice Girls fans this morning, who gathered on Twitter to revel in the news.

Some even suggested that this new release could be the start of something bigger.

"This is so fabulous," a fan tweeted. "Love that we're getting an unreleased demo. Hope there are more coming."

Another said, "Love that Feed Your Love got its justice!"

A third shared their own Spice Girls story, tweeting, "True Life: I was sent home from elementary school because I couldn’t stop crying the day they broke up. @spicegirls."

Although the Spice Girls—minus Victoria Beckham—went on a reunion tour two years ago, there is no suggestion that there are imminent reunion plans to celebrate their 25th anniversary.

But, that's not to say it won't ever happen again.

In fact, Baby Spice AKA Emma Bunton, revealed she's sure the band will hit the road again one day. 

Speaking on Heart Breakfast, Emma said, "We’d love to go back on tour. We are just waiting to see what the world is doing."

To which host, Jamie Theakston, said, "So that’s a yes?"

After a short pause, Emma grinned,"Yeah!"

Yay!
