The duo, who released their debut LP Happiness in September last year, said that they have starting thinking about a follow-up, which will be influenced by their current European tour.
Discussing their next record, Theo Hutchcraft told Digital Spy: "We've started thinking about it but it's a bit too early be specific at the moment. One thing we realised when touring is that we want make a record that will give a great live show.
"We made our last album while sitting in a dark room and we didn't think about how the songs would translate on stage. I think second album will factor that side of things in a lot more."
The group also admitted that the success of the album across Europe will affect the lyrical content of the next LP.
"Our first record is about us before our success," Hutchcraft explained. "What we don't want to do is make one of those annoying second albums that talk about how hard it is to be famous.
"It will be very different, because some of the songs on this album we could never write now. We could certainly never write a 'Wonderful Life' again because we're not in that frame of mind anymore."
He added: "We find it cathartic to make sad music, and it's in our personalities to do it, so we'll see. Maybe it'll be more depressing."
Hurts release their new single 'Sunday' on February 27.
