Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell will release new music next month.

The 41-year-old singer will put out her new single Half of Me on 25 October through a record deal with Sony Music Australia.

In a statement, Halliwell says the song "is about love, hope and optimism with a splash of humor".

The Australia’s Got Talent judge explained that she is loving life Down Under, adding: “I've been so welcomed by the Aussies – it’s fantastic I wrote my new song there."

Halliwell hasn't released any new music since 2005's Passion, her third album which peaked at No. 41 on the U.K. albums chart.
