TLC is back for the last time. The iconic R&B trio-at-heart (rest in peace Left Eye) are preparing to release their final album in June and have now given us our first taste of the record. The new single, “Way Back,” apparently features Snoop Dogg (can anyone hear him?), and as needed, it really does go “way back.”

T-Boz and Chilli kick things off appropriately as they acknowledge their long absence, then picking up right where they left off. The track harkens back to the classic 90s R&B sound, with irresistible grooves, lush synths, and an ultra-melodic chorus. The lyrics take the sentimental vibes up a notch, with loving references to departed icons like Prince and Michael Jackson.

“Way Back” was initially previewed during an episode of hit series Star, and is described in a statement as a track for "those relationships which stay with you through good times and bad, and suggests a band not only reflecting on their sometimes-turbulent roots but facing forwards, to a bright future.” If this is any indication, expect the album to be a bittersweet and emotional farewell.
