TLC is definitely releasing an album this year. The legendary group’s manager, Bill Diggins, revealed their Kickstarter-funded album will release on June 30.
“The album date is firm, June 30th is the release of the new TLC album that you made happen,” Diggins wrote on Kickstarter. “Tionne and Chilli have been working night and day to hit this date. The video and a photo shoot on April 18th, 19th [and] 20th.”
Although a release date is set, TLC still hasn’t named the project yet.”Let’s hear your suggestions for the album title,” Diggins said. “Tionne and Chilli are still undecided so looking to you for inspiration.
In February, Diggins announced TLC’s final album would be available this summer. “I am thrilled to let you know that the album is tentatively scheduled to be released at the end of June and you will receive your advance album prior to that,” he wrote. “We are working out the official date in the next couple of weeks and once it is final we will notify you.”
In February 2015, TLC made headlines after launching a Kickstarter campaign to fund their final album. The group surpassed their goal with $430,000 raised in a matter of days.
TLC’s fifth studio album will follow 2002’s 3D, which was released nearly seven months after member Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez died in a car accident. The album debuted at no. 6 on the Billboard 200 with 143,000 copies sold in the first week.
