The Ting Tings Announce Release of NEW Album 'Sounds From Nowheresville' in March 2012

Platinum-selling British duo The Ting Tings (Jules De Martino and Katie White) are back with their highly anticipated sophomore album Sounds From Nowheresville (Columbia Records) due out in the US March 2012. The Ting Tings have rediscovered their sound, called upon new inspirations, and are back with revitalized energy and a fresh perspective. The Ting Tings launched themselves into the world with their DIY hardcore-pop in 2008 to massive acclaim with their debut album We Started Nothing. The album spawned hit singles “That’s Not My Name,” “Shut Up And Let Me Go” along with “Great DJ”.

At the start of 2011, The Ting Tings were pointed in the direction of the unequivocal classic Beastie Boys album, Paul’s Boutique. Having played the record many times before, they were overawed when they delved back into the album and discovered its many nuances. If they needed a bounce-off point to set their muse free, this was it. What they had learned most implicitly was a freedom to move around musically. Hence the title: Sounds From Nowheresville. Musically, the album has really let The Ting Tings rip. Check out the video for their first single “Hang It Up”
