The Ting Tings spoke about the recording of their troubled new album 'Sounds From Nowheresville' revealing that they have to avoid "cheap, nasty hits". But the duo turned sour when asked about whether any of the songs on their new album would become big hit singles, the band replying: "We would rather write songs that nobody's going to hear than write dance tracks that would fit on the radio after David Guetta", with Katie White, the Ting Tings lead singer adding: "I'd rather puke on my own feet than that".
The English musical duo told the Guardian in a recent interview that they do not expect the new 10 track album to be anywhere near as successful as 'We Started Nothing', their debut album as they'd rather sell fewer records than have their music fit alongside the likes of David Guetta. (A little harsh maybe)
Jules De Martino also added: "It would have been so easy to quickly bash out any old shit off the back of the first album. Get it on the radio, have a cheap nasty hit. And we didn't want to do that."
The band is set to release 'Sounds From Nowheresville' on February 27, but their second album has already been leaked online over a month ahead of its official release.
According to fans on Twitter, the follow up to 2008's 'We Started Nothing' is already available to listen to online. The band were informed of the album leak last week, when hundreds of twitter fans sent messages to them to say how much they loved the new album.
The band have since pleaded to their label, Columbia Records tweeting "come on Columbia, let it go!!!". Ironic for a band that “would rather write songs that nobody's going to hear than write tracks that would fit on the radio” to want to release an album early to avoid fans listening to their music without paying. Just saying...
The new album is set to be released on Feburary 27th. Track listing for the Standard version is below.
