She has been missed! Upon the release of her new album, Still on my Mind, Oscar-nominated singer-songwriter Dido has announced she will be beginning her end of the year tour right here in Birmingham!
Following the release of her first album in five years, the stunning Still On My Mind, this marks her first return to touring in 15 years. The London-born star made her entrance on to the scene with her debut album No Angel (1999) which has sold more than 21 million copies, attaining international success.
With further recognition in the States she grabbed the attention of US audiences with her iconic voice when her song Thank You was sampled on Eminem’s No 1 single Stan.
Dido has also been a regular contributor to Faithless, an electronica band whose members include her brother, Rollo.
In recent interviews she has let us into what’s been happening out of the spotlight while dealing with writers block and life after motherhood, “I was writing after I had my son. But I don’t think I wrote anything good for three years,” Dido says. “Partly because my song writing is so much about light and dark. My whole MO from the beginning has been that every song is about a conflicted situation or emotion. Then I had Stanley and was like, ‘I just love him, I want to keep him safe.’ There was nothing to write. I stopped seeing the light and dark.”
Well we are glad to have her back and gracing us all with her amazing voice. Why not come and see her performing material from the new album, as well as classic tracks such as Thank You, Here With Me, White Flag and Life For Rent – you don’t want to miss it!
