The Ting Tings have revealed why they decided to shun their native Manchester for Berlin to record their new album.

In a video interview with NME, which you can watch on the right now, Katie White and Jules De Martino said that the decision was not a difficult one to make.

"We didn't want to go back to Salford and do the same thing again," De Martino explained.

White added: "One of the reasons why we didn't go back to Manchester [was] because I think you can go back to Manchester, be a minor celebrity, get a few free drinks if you go to the Night & Day and pat yourself on the back. I'd rather just make music."

The band's new single, 'Hands', is released on October 11.
