The Ting Tings second album ‘Sounds From Nowheresville’ has leaked online over a month ahead of its official release.
The follow up to 2008’s ‘We Started Nothing’ was supposed to be released on February 27, but now, according to fans on Twitter, the album is available to listen to online.
Jules de Martino of the duo has said: “We should be pissed & outraged but what good would it do? Some selfish idiot who had the music early just couldn’t help themselves.” He is now calling for the band’s record label Columbia to pull the album’s release date forwards, saying “come on Columbia, let it go!!!”
The band were informed of the album leak earlier this afternoon, when fans tweeted them to say how much they were enjoying the album. “Lot’s of people getting a listen of our new record… Miraculously?” posted de Martino in response.
Katie White of the band recently told NME of the album: “We’re just our own thing – we’re neither ‘indie-cool’ nor mainstream pop, and we’ve never been part of a scene. ‘Sounds From Nowheresville’ is a perfect title for the new album.”
