Melanie C Gets Sporty in 'Rock Me' Music Video, Announces Worldwide Single Release and Album Title


SOO much new Melanie C news to report. EEEEEE! As I mentioned last month, Melanie C's new single, "Rock Me" is due for release in Germany, Austria and Switzerland June 24th on her own indie label, Red Girl Records.  In more exciting news, it was announced through Melanie's official site that the single will be getting a worldwide digital release (hopefully INCLUDING the U.S.) between the June 24th and June 26th, depending on the territory. AMAZING!   "Rock Me" was co-written by Melanie C, German songwriter Dave Roth (Tokio Hotel) and Dave Jost and co-produced by Roth and Andy Chatterly (Nerina Pallot, Kylie Minogue).  "Rock Me" has been selected as the the official theme song for German TV channel ZDF's coverage of the FIFA Women's World Cup, which is a tremendous honor!

To celebrate the upcoming release of the single, we've been graced with the release of a hot new music video for the song, featuring impressive dance AND soccer moves by Melanie C and a troupe of sporty backup dancers.  The video was directed by German video director Marcus Sternberg (Run DMC vs. Jason Nevins, Schiller, Nena, Christina Stürmer) and filmed in Manchester.

"Rock Me" will be the first single released from Melanie C's upcoming fifth studio album, entitled The Sea.  The album features collaborations with Jodie Marr (Paloma Faith, MIKA), Cutfather (The Saturdays, The Wanted), Ina Wroldsen (The Pussycat Dolls, Pixie Lott), Jez Ashurst (A1, Brian McFadden), James Walsh (Starsailor) and Richard "Biff" Stannard," who consequently wrote the album's title track and had previously worked with Melanie on Spice Girls material as well as her debut solo single "Goin' Down."  From the sounds of it, The Sea could be Mel C's best album yet.  According to Melanie herself in a recent website Q&A:
"I really feel this could be the best album of my career. I've worked with great writers, got fantastic songs and I'm really excited about the production. After working in the theatre my voice is in pretty good shape and following a long break after having my little girl and my theatre run, I've been feeling even more inspired." {SOURCE}
I'm SO SO SO excited!  If "Rock Me" isn't enough to tide you over until The Sea's projected September release, check out this live performance of another new album track called "Stupid Game."  The song was co-written by Melanie, Adam Argyle and Martin Brammer.  You can also listen to a snippet of the "Rock Me" B-Side, called "Stop This Train."  According to Melanie, "It was a crazy fun moment in the studio with my old mate Peter Vettese. It's like nothing else on the new album but I love it so wanted you to have it!" {SOURCE}  Plenty of new Melanie C music to go around.  Now, go check out the "Rock Me" music video below and leave comments!  Are you happy she's back? {SOURCE}
