The Ting Tings Finish Work On Second Album

The Tings Tings have confirmed they have completed work on their second album which will follow-up their debut 2008 album ‘We Started Nothing’.

The album is expected to be a change of direction for the duo who have been away recording tracks in German city Berlin last Christmas. Talking to BBC’s Newsbeat, singer Katie White revealed the new record was “"very different to the first one. It's still us and it's still pop. It's just huge."

Speaking about the pair’s recording sessions in Germany, White explained how the city played a major role in the Ting Ting’s song-writing. "It definitely has an impact on how you write. Even like the weather because it was so cold when we got there at Christmas. It was like minus 25C (-13F) and just snowed for a month-and-a-half."

The Ting Tings have decided to produce the as-yet-untitled new album themselves and the duo had this to say about opting to go it alone. “What makes us us is that we do it all ourselves. If you start bringing big producers in it'll totally change the way we are and what people like about us. We're complete control freaks -- I don't think we could work with anyone else. We'd have a heart attack if they changed one little beat."

After marking their return to the UK at this year’s Wireless festival, The Ting Tings are now making plans to set up a UK-wide tour. Check back to Stereoboard.com for details sometime soon!

The Ting Tings - Super Critical (Album Review)
Tue 28 Oct 2014
As much as the difficult second album is a major hurdle to clear, reacting to a negative sophomore experience isn’t all fun and games either. The Ting Tings, who possess a contrary streak that is both admirable and, if you’re a label type, probably a little taxing, responded to the breakout success of That’s Not My Name with the decidedly radio-unfriendly ‘Sounds From Nowheresville’ and promptly went it alone.

Imagination Is Key: How The Sheepdogs Are Keeping Rock 'N' Roll Colourful
Wed 31 Oct 2018
It’s virtually impossible to do anything completely new in the realm of rock'n'roll, especially when some of the greatest acts of all time have already pioneered, innovated and explored the genre to its very limits and beyond. Does that mean like-minded young bands should just lazily imitate their predecessors or even give up? Hell, no. They need to follow the example set by the Sheepdogs, write the best songs possible and spice them up with as many stylistic and instrumental flavours as their talents will allow.

Photo: Robin Pope Here’s a thing. Do you remember when Rod Stewart was cool? Probably not. It’s been over 40 years since Faces, the original lad-rockers, split. Perhaps you remember when Sting was cool instead, then? But once the Police went the same way as Stewart’s mob, their frontman launched a similarly disappointing solo career.
