“TLC’s anthems of respect and empowerment stood out above all others…genre-defining pioneers” Guardian

“One of the most confounding acts to enter the mainstream…upending expectations of what an all-female group should sound like” The Quietus

The thirst for the smooth tunes of TLC in these dark and unsettling times is stronger than ever.” Hunger.

“All your R&B dreams have come true.” i-D

 

Following their joyous- comeback show at London’s Koko (which sold out immediately), iconic girl-group TLC have just announced their first ever UK & Irish Tour.

After largely stepping back from the public eye since the tragic passing of Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes, a Kickstarter campaign was launched to contribute towards recording the new album, and became the most-funded in the company’s history (with the likes of Katy Perry amongst the first to donate). Early live shows as a duo, which saw them play sold out arenas in Japan – where they became the first artist to be awarded MTV’s Legend Award since Michael Jackson – and also in the US and Australia illustrate a renewed confidence; mixing iconic hits like ‘Waterfalls’, ‘No Scrubs’ and ‘Creep’ with new material from ‘TLC’.

The band have also just released their brand new album ‘TLC’ which has been – as the opening lyric of  their first single release from the album ‘Way Back’ suggests – a long, long time coming.” This is the sound of a band not only reflecting on their sometimes-turbulent roots but also facing forwards, towards a bright future…though their past is truly ground-breaking. Having sold over 65 million records worldwide, TLC are not only the best-selling American girl group of all time; with 4 Grammy Awards, 4 multi-platinum albums (two of which went Diamond), ten Top 10 singles and four Number 1s, theirs is an influence – across music, fashion and female friendship – which defined and continues to define generation

The critically acclaimed brand new album ‘TLC’ is out now! Includes the singles ‘Way Back’ feat. Snoop Dogg & ‘It’s Sunny’ plus 5 bonus tracks inc. ‘No Scrubs’, ‘Creep’, ‘Unpretty’, ‘Baby-Baby-Baby’ & ‘Diggin’ On You’ on CD and Deluxe Digital
