UK R'n'B girl group Stooshe are set to release a cover of TLC's classic 1995 single 'Waterfalls'.

Alexandra Buggs, Karis Anderson and Courtney Rumbold will put out their version of the song on November 5, accompanied by a video which will see guest appearances from the two surviving members of the US girl group, Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas. Rapper Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes died in 2002 in a car crash.

Stooshe are releasing the single after a video of them singing the track acoustically made its way online and was viewed by T-Boz. The TLC member congratulated the London-based band on their version of her band's song on Twitter and they subsequently decided to put out the song as a single.

Scroll down to watch the band performing the track at T In The Park earlier this year.

Stooshe will release their debut, self-titled album a week after the release of 'Waterfalls', on November 12, via Warner Music UK. They will support Jennifer Lopez at a series of UK and Ireland shows later this month, playing Dublin O2 (October 19), London O2 Arena (22) and Manchester MEN Arena (23).
