TLC fans rejoice! The announcement we’ve all been waiting for has finally be released as the group’s manager Bill Diggins reveals the official release date of the forthcoming final album and more.
T-Boz and Chili have been working night in and night out these last few months getting everything ready for their fans as previously a recent uproar came about when no details about the forthcoming project nor where the money has gone.
The group’s manager Diggins went on to shed light on the delay of the project as well as a few upcoming details leading up to it: “Hey Kickstarter Family, The album date is firm, June 30th is the release of the new TLC album that you made happen,” he wrote. “Tionne and Chilli have been working night and day to hit this date. The video and a photo shoot on April 18th, 19th, 20th.”
“When we decided to do the album it was based on a number of emotional decisions and one of the biggest was how you inspired Tboz and Chilli by your emails and texts asking them to do another album,” he wrote. “At the time we had no music, no producers, no writers, and a few ideas. We also were in the middle of rehearsal’s for TLC’s first arena tour since The FanMail Tour and therefore on the road for most of the year. It was very important to establish TLC’s touring credibility and as most of you saw TLC live I am sure you agreed that we accomplished that goal.
“It took a lot more time to coordinate schedules with writers, TLC’s executive producer Ron Fair and recording sessions than anticipated. I could go on in more detail to explain how TLC’s touring, schedule, writing schedule and producing schedule was delayed but the simple fact is that Tboz & Chilli were inspired to make a record that they could be proud of and they would not settle for less and sometimes you just cannot rush art. They demanded of themselves a record that would stand up to the great body of work created in the past and that you would be proud of; because your belief and support is the greatest form of love and we want you to be proud.”
Countdown till the forthcoming project starts… NOW!
