Why the Ting Tings Deliberately Deleted Their Second Album
The Ting Tings–Katie White and Jules de Martino–looked like they were on some kind of career fast track when they released We Started Nothing in 2008. But where is the follow-up? In a virtual trash bin somewhere.
They spent nine months working on something in a German jazz club but when a bunch of label suits showed up to check on their progress, they kinda freaked out. Although they seemed to love what the Ting Tings were doing, they way they expressed their pleasure was, um, unsettling.
So they deleted the album. Every. Single. Track.
But don’t worry because once they started again, the suits left them alone. Sounds from Nowheresville will be out in March. And if you’d like to read about the deleted record, go here.
