Carl Barat has admitted that the recording process for Dirty Pretty Things’ second album has been frustrating.

The follow-up to 2006’s ‘Waterloo To Anywhere’ – which has yet to be titled – will now not be released until the end of the summer Gigwise understands.

Speaking to 6Music, Barat said: "The recording process was quite long. We were approaching from a different style of doing things as well, less jingly-jangly and happy-go-lucky. It was a bit more planned.”

The singer also admitted that their inability to produce any material before the summer could compromise a slot at this years Glastonbury Festival.

"Glastonbury's been rumoured but we don't have many bargaining chips when we don't have any songs out," Barat explained.

"It's quite frustrating not to have anything out. We're eager to get the record out but a lot of hiccups seem to be happening along the way.

"There are a lot of loose ends that need to be tied up properly and then someone had to go back to Los Angeles and pick up the files again and strange things like that."

Meanwhile, the ticket registration process for this years Glastonbury festival opened this morning. Festival hopefuls will have until March 14th to apply for this year’s event.
