’90s R&B group TLC have announced that they’re going to release a new album, 14 years after the last.
The group’s last album 3D was released in 2002, just seven months after the death of one third of TLC, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. The album was completed by the remaining members Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and was considered as a finale for the group.
They are now, however, calling this latest album their “final album”. Back in January, the pair started a Kickstarter to raise funds for the album and have since secured over $430,000 to make the record.
As NME reports, their manager Bill Diggins has said, “the best is definitely yet to come,” revealing that 15 songs have been written for the album. T-Boz has also said that there is a tour “on the way” as well.
While there is no release date set just yet, they have been posting updates from the studio and by the looks of it they’re still recording.
This forthcoming album will be their fifth album. Their biggest album to date is 1994’s CrazySexyCool but it’s follow-up FanMail spawned No Scrubs, a track that still gets regular spins in the club.
“This album, our final album, is dedicated to all of you that have stuck with us, always challenging us to do our best,” the pair said about the record.
