Around 1000 fans of 90s R&B have pitched in nearly $600,000 for TLC to make a new album.

TLC - famous for hits such as Waterfalls and No Scrubs - haven't released an album in 14 years.

Their last album, 3D was released in 2002, just seven months after pivotal member Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes died.

Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas and Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins made it without her, in what was to be the group's last hurrah.

However, they're now calling their upcoming release their final album.

It wasn't clear whether it would actually happen, but the group took to Kickstarter at the beginning of the year to raise funds to make it a reality.

They've since raised just over US$430,000 - a little less than $600,000.

According to NME, their manager Bill Diggins says 15 songs have already been written and "the best is definitely yet to come", and there's a tour "on the way".
