The Ting Tings have revealed that their record label were chasing them "around the world" for their much-delayed second album.

The duo have been working on the follow-up to 2008 album 'We Started Nothing' for the past three years, and have now finished their second LP 'Sounds From Nowheresville', which is slated for a February 2012 release.

Speaking to NME in an exclusive interview that you can read in this week's issue, the band's Jules de Martino revealed that their label had been forced to chase them across the globe waiting for them to finish the record.

He said:

There was a period of friction. The label were chasing us around the world for it.


They also revealed that they'd scrapped an entire album's worth of material after working on tracks in Berlin.

The band unveiled the video for their comeback track 'Hang It Up' last month. It is the first song the band have made public in over a year.

To read the full interview with The Ting Tings, in which they reveal exactly why their second album took so long to finally complete, pick up this week's issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands and available digitally now.

Meanwhile, The Ting Tings will tour the UK later this month, kicking off with a show at Leeds Cockpit on November 21 and wrapping the dates up at O2 Newcastle Academy 2 nine days later.
