TLC have set a release date for their “last and final album,” but it’s without a title and they’re looking for assistance with naming it, as Billboard points out. The Kickstarter-funded LP will be their first since 2002’s 3D.
In a recent post on TLC’s Kickstarter page, manager Bill Diggins revealed the album will be released on June 30th. “Tionne and Chilli have been working night and day to hit this date,” he wrote, adding that they will be shooting a video and doing photo shoots later this month.
“One more thing,” he continued. “We need your help… let’s hear your suggestions for the album title! Tionne and Chilli are still undecided so looking to you for inspiration.” Those who want to contribute suggestions may do so in the comment section of the post.
Since launching their Kickstarter in January 2015, TLC have received more than $ 430,000 to fund the album. It will be the group’s first LP solely featuring T-Boz and Chilli. Member Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes died in 2002, seven months before 3D was released.
“Our final album will stay true to the TLC sound, always confronting the real issues and life experiences that we all must face every single day, everywhere,” the duo wrote of their forthcoming album. “We write music that people relate to … timeless music. No matter the trends, we feel like our music is always relevant.”
TLC will embark on the I Love the ’90s – The Party Continues Tour with Naughty by Nature, Biz Markie and others beginning July 7th in Everett, WA. Last December, TLC’s T-Boz and Chilli appeared on Taraji P. Henson’s Taraji White Hot Holidays with Missy Elliott to perform their remix of “Sleigh Ride.” Elliott covered Lopes’ verse from the song.
