Geri Halliwell to release new album

London: Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell is preparing to release a new album next month.

The singer will put out her new single `Half of Me` in October through a record deal with Sony Music Australia reported Daily Mirror.

"The song is about love, hope and optimism with a splash of humour," Halliwell said in a statement.

Halliwell relocated Down Under earlier this year to serve as a judge on the popular TV show `Australia`s Got Talent`.

"I`ve been so welcomed by the Aussies - it`s fantastic I wrote my new song there," she said.

Halliwell left the Spice Girls in 1998 to pursue a solo career.

The girl power pop group reformed for a world tour in 2007 and 2008.
