Anthony Rossomando revealed to NME on March 2, 2007, that the band planned to record the album in summer of 2007, to have it ready for a tentative September 2007 release.

In October the band appeared on the Love Music Hate Racism CD, which was released on the cover of NME. “9 Lives” was Dirty Pretty Things’ contribution to the free album and is in a finished studio form.

According to a news release on their official website on 2 May, 2008, the band had completed 12 tracks for their second album. They revealed the title to be Romance At Short Notice on 6 May, 2008.

It is scheduled to be released on 30 June, 2008, with the single “Tired of England” to be released a week earlier on 23 June.
