TLC Wants You To Name Their Kickstarter Album Due This Summer
TLC took to Kickstarter again to announce a release date for its upcoming crowdsourced album, and to take suggestions on what they should call the release.
Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas of the R&B group will drop the highly anticipated comeback album on June 30, per the new Kickstarter post by their manager Bill Diggins.
“Hey Kickstarter Family, The album date is firm, June 30th is the release of the new TLC album that you made happen! Tionne and Chilli have been working night and day to hit this date. The video and a photo shoot on April 18th, 19th, 20th,” wrote Diggins.
TLC launched the Kickstarter fund in January 2015 (pledges started at $5) and at press time have received $430,255 for the project, which will mark the first effort since the death of member Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes in 2002.
Though their album, the first since 2002’s 3D — has a drop date, Diggins asked backers for one more favor: a title. “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,” he said before thanking supporters.
