Dido at Sage Gateshead

About

Dido is back following the release of her 2019 album Still On My Mind.

Dido, the chilled-out singer-songwriter, notched up over 40 million album sales across her career, making two of the best-selling albums in British chart history. No Angel still remains the top-selling debut by a British female artist worldwide.

Dido’s career started when she was a backing singer with her brother Rollo’s band Faithless. She toured in support of their 1996 debut album all the way through to the release of her own debut in 1998. No Angel’s success was slow burning, growing and growing to eventually become the bestselling album of 2001.

Her biggest break arrived in 2000, when rap superstar Eminem sampled one of her tracks, Thank You, for the chorus of his hit single Stan. The result was a surprisingly touching song, and demand for the Dido original quickly escalated. Thank You became a Top Five smash in early 2001, as did the accompanying No Angel, whose album sales topped 12 million copies worldwide by the time Dido returned to the spotlight two years later.

In September 2003, she released her long-awaited follow-up, Life for Rent. Following a world tour, Dido once again retreated from the public eye in 2005 to work on her third solo release. Safe Trip Home arrived in 2008, featuring collaborations with Brian Eno, Mick Fleetwood, and Citizen Cope.

Dido went on to release one more album, Girl Who Got Away, in 2013, but once again opted not to take it on the road.

Still On My Mind is only Dido’s fifth album in 20 years. And it is right up there with her best work. She was the girl who got away. But after five years of silence, Dido is back.
