On this rainy Friday afternoon we have a very special treat in store for all of you, a previously unheard Melanie C song called 'Rising Sun'!
Originally recorded during the 'The Sea' writing sessions, 'Rising Sun' ended up being unused and locked away in our Red Girl Records vault. With the summer sun seeming to have disappeared in England, we thought this would be the perfect time to share this up-tempo summery tune.
You can listen to the full track (for free!) below - we hope you like it! 'Rising Sun' is written by Melanie, Richard "Biff" Stannard, Ash Howes & Seton Daunt.

If you feel like giving something back, Melanie is once again taking part in the London Triathlon to raise money for charity and of course you can always sponsor Sporty! You can help Melanie raise money for Shelter by going to http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/MelanieC - all your donations (no matter how small!) are very much appreciated by everyone involved. Thank you very much in advance for your support!
