Katie Ting Ting told BANGShowbiz (quoted on Contact Music) that despite approval of the material from their record label, scrapping the songs was "the right thing to do".
This sounds like bollocks to us but anyway.
She added: "[The label] could see it tying in with the shit euro-pop thing at the time, and we were like, 'nah'… Even if it's an idea and someone goes 'that's amazing,' we'll be like, 'no I don't like it, delete,' and literally wipe it off."
The band then went on a 'sojourn' to Spain to redo the album.
If anyone's still interested, 'Sounds From Nowheresville' is out on February 27.
