After meeting their Kickstarter goal back in 2015, TLC has offered a tentative summer release date for their new album.

The goal of $150,000 was met in just one week, with fans pledging to earn autographed memorabilia and even a movie night with T-Boz or Chilli. Now, Allhiphop reports that the group’s manager, Bill Diggins, has said that the album will likely be released this summer. In total, TLC received $430,000 after about a three week run with the campaign.

However, the hold up with releasing the crowd-funded project did cause a little bit of backlash when fans, upset with the album’s delayed arrival, created A “#TLCIsGoingToJailParty” hashtag on Twitter.

Diggins apologized in statement released on Kickstarter, saying the delay was due to an arena tour TLC had to wrap up before they could finish work on the album.

“I could go on in more detail… but the simple fact is that T-Boz & 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,” Diggins said.

The new, as of yet untitled project, will be the first since the death of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez in 2002. As of right now, there are few details about producers and potential features, but hopefully, more information will begin surfacing in the coming weeks.
