The music industry just isn’t what it used to be, times are tough and in the case of 90’s R&B icons TLC, they’re relying on crowdfunding to provide fans with one final album… and because the world really needs another TLC album. I’m still questioning whether I’m being sarcastic or not. The group has set up a Kickstarter page asking for donations to help them produce and release it, which they claim will be their final album.
While the smallest pledges of $5 and $10 don’t include the finished album, however $15 will get you a digital copy and a “PDF of a handwritten list of our 15 favourite songs” because yeah that’s a great incentive. I suppose they also get a remix too, so I suppose that’s alright. However those willing to spend a bit more can get a shoutout in the album booklet, a video tutorial of TLC dance moves, signed vinyl or a personal voicemail message.
Desperate times call for desperate measures, but then again there is this whole 90’s revival happening at the moment. I guess we all love a bit of nostalgia.
Speaking of nostalgia, I do love me some “Waterfalls”
