'Hat 2 da Back' hitmakers TLC will play their first ever (!) UK 'gig' at London's KOKO on May 9, it's been announced.

The 'intimate' show is in support of their kick­starter-funded new album, which is appar­ently out in the summer.

Tickets go on sale on March 24, which is quite literally this Friday.

In other TLC-related news, the writers behind 'No Scrubs' — aka Kevin Briggs, Kandi Burruss and Tameka Cottle — have been ret­ro­act­ively added to the song­writ­ing credits for Ed Sheeran's quite popular 'Shape Of You'.

The sim­il­ar­it­ies between the two songs had been mentioned a couple of times before, ie every fucker's done an acoustic cover of the two on YouTube.
