Geri Halliwell - Geri Halliwell writes album in 'magical Welsh shed'

Subscribe to Geri Halliwell alerts

Geri Halliwell has written some of her comeback album in a ''magical shed'' in Wales.

The Spice Girls singer had ''fun'' penning three hits for her new record with songwriter Amy Wadge - who wrote 'Gold Rush' with Ed Sheeran - in a ''ginger bread house'' and admits the session has made her feel rejuvenated and in the ''right place'' to release new material.

Writing on her blog, the flame-haired star - who hasn't released an album since her third solo record, 'Passion', in 2005 - explained: ''I drove through the rolling hills of Wales to a 'ginger bread' house, and was welcomed by a sparkling woman named Amy Wadge (imagine Ellie Golding as a mother, who plays guitar & piano) with two little angels wrapped around her ankles. Instantly my doubt melted, her house was cosy, full of love and memories. We then went to the back garden to her 'magic shed' (this is where she wrote with Ed Sheeran - 'Gold rush').

''The beginning of anything is truly magical and when you know you've hit a sweet spot. With our creativity up and running, it didn't feel like work, it felt like love and fun. That's when I know I'm in the right place.''

The 40-year-old singer - who has six-year-old daughter Bluebell - admits she didn't hold back while writing her hat-trick of hits, and insists one of her new songs is ''super special''.

She added: ''We spent the day chatting and then we began to write, laugh, chat and then write more. She would play the guitar, I would sing and we had the most magical time. I didn't sensor myself one bit, nor did she, and we wrote the most authentic songs only two women could write together. She was the yin to my yang. She is much cooler than me and our creativity was a great balance. Bluebell had fun playing with her daughters. Meanwhile Amy and I had a blast in 'the shed' and wrote three great songs... one I believe is super special, it just flowed out of us. (sic)''
