"We didn't want to sound like everything else on the radio," the Ting Tings' Katie White tells SPIN about the band's second album, Sounds From Nowheresville, a tight, genre-hopping 10-track collection due in the U.S. in early March. "The problem when you have a hit record is that everyone expects the same thing over and over again."
Instead, inspired by the way that most people listen to music now (through mp3 playlists instead of albums), the band was inspired to make a record of ten tracks that genre-jumps between Pet Shop Boys inspired club music to Fleetwood Macish ballads.
The band's debut We Started Nothing, with its smash singles "That's Not My Name" and "Shut Up and Let Me Go," became a pop sensation that went on to sell more than 2 million copies worldwide. The Ting Tings were among the first artists signed to Jay-Z's Roc Nation management team.
