The Ting Tings checked in with fans on their blog at MySpace (@thetingtings) on Friday (February 5), discussing their visit to Los Angeles for the Grammy Awards, where they were nominated for Best New Artist (Zac Brown Band won the award), and progress on a second album. The message states:
We arrived back in Berlin today after a strange week in LA for the Grammys. I think we dealt with the red carpet OK, normally we try to avoid them at all costs, in fact I think we have managed to get away with doing about three in our lives ( : they are the antithesis of what we want to do with 4 hours of our life…….this probably makes us terrible *pop stars*- but we trotted along with the rest of them!
It was good to be nominated and to people watch, and fun to navigate ourselves around Los Angeles for 2 days after but it was a joy to be back in Berlin with no more interruptions for our recordings. 7 songs along and it feels great to loose ourselves in ideas for writing, productions and stupid little videos. I’m going to try and keep you updated on our recordings and stupid little video’s whilst here.
We have time to think again and make sense of it all xx
