TLC have unveiled new single “Way Back” from their forthcoming fifth and final album, which does not yet have a title. iHeartRadio premiered the track on Thursday. While T-Boz tweeted that the full song features Snoop Dogg, the tune that iHeartRadio debuted on Thursday does not include his vocals.

As the title suggests, “Way Back” recalls the group’s classic Nineties R&B sound gliding beneath T-Boz and Chilli reminiscing about good times, hanging with old friends and high school.

“Don’t you ever think/ Back on all that other shit we went through/ You know I remember,” they sing. “Don’t you ever wish/ One day we could reminisce/ It feels like we were just together/ ‘Cause we go way back.” They also namecheck Prince, Marvin Gaye, James Brown and Michael Jackson.

TLC turned to Kickstarter to fund their “last and final album.” To date, they’ve raised more than $430,000. It will be the group’s first LP solely featuring T-Boz and Chilli. Member Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes died in 2002, seven months before their previous 3D album was released.

Earlier this month, TLC announced their album would be released on June 30th, but they do not yet have a title for it. “We need your help… let’s hear your suggestions for the album title! Tionne and Chilli are still undecided so looking to you for inspiration,” their manager Bill Diggins posted on Kickstarter. Album name suggestions can be made in the comment section of the post.
