(Radio.com) Spice Girls star Geri Halliwell has announced that she will be releasing a brand new song "Angels in Chains" that she wrote in memory of George Michael.

Halliwell and Michael were more than fellow English pop icons -- they also shared a close personal friendship. The Wham! frontman was a sounding board for Halliwell when she departed the Spice Girls to embark on her own solo career.

"When I first heard the sad news of his passing, I was nine months pregnant with my son Monty and I was full of emotions," she said in a statement. "I didn't know quite what to do with my feelings so I put it in a song, which became 'Angels in Chains.'"

Halliwell recorded the song with Wham! singer Shirley Lewis and Michael's longtime guitarist, Phil Palmer. Read more here.
