TLC Planning 1st Album In 10 Years, Casting For VH1 Biopic
Just over 10 years after the release of their last album, TLC is ready to get back in the studio.
The R&B duo, announced during an appearance at the Mobo Awards in the UK over the weekend that a new album, and biopic are in the works.
“We’re going to still sound like TLC, evolving to whatever level we need to be at this time,” T-Boz told the BBC. “We’ve always grown throughout the years and have always had our own sound. That’s what works for us and we don’t have to worry about anybody else.
“When that stops working, maybe we’ll hang up the towel, but that still works. We have to get into the studio and start feeling how we feel. You have to find yourself first and then you find the path and then you have an album before you know it.”
The record, which has no announced release date, comes just over a decade after the death of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes who lost her life in a car accident, a tragic ending which ran eerily similar to that of Blaque member, Natina Reed. The 32-year-old was hit by a car just shy of her 33rd birthday, and was introduced to the mainstream by Lopes.
Given her untimely death, the remaining two members of TLC were said to be putting together a performance with Lopes as a hologram, but have yet to confirm plans to go forward with the idea.
In addition to the album, they are also auditioning actors to portray them in the forthcoming bio to air on VH1.
