After a whirlwind of touring non-stop for the last two years, The Ting Tings settled in Berlin where they completed their sophomore album in a disused basement jazz club that they turned it into their own studio in East Berlin’s Freidrichshain District. Spending the winter of 2009 with their music equipment, fairy-lights, pens and gaffer tape and with no TV, no visiting friends, no distractions at all, they wrote, recorded and produced their next album which is yet to be titled as the band explained in a post to fans on their Facebook this week.
