Mel C has collaborated with Peter Aristone.

The 40-year-old singer and the up-and-coming musician are set to release their new single "Cool As You", which explores the early stages of a relationship between two lovers, later this month.

Mel said: "I have been lucky enough in my career to work with various artists and I always enjoy collaborating, especially with other vocalists. As soon as I heard "Cool As You" I was excited to be involved with the project and Peter was a pleasure to work with."

"Cool As You", which will feature on Peter"s forthcoming album "19 Days in Tetbury", will be the second release by the singer following his debut single "Sunlight", which was a massive hit last summer.

Peter said: "I"m absolutely thrilled to be working with an international recording artist of Melanie C"s standing. To have this happen on my second single release in the UK is like a dream come true for me."

Meanwhile, Mel C is performing a "secret gig" at the trendy Queen of Hoxton pub in East London on Wednesday (12.03.14) and, with a 250 capacity restriction at the venue, it"s likely to be packed out.

"Cool As You" will be available from March 31, 2014, on iTunes and "19 Days in Tetbury" will be released in the Autumn.
