Competition: Win a copy of Dido’s new album Still On My Mind

Dido releases her first new album in five years, ‘Still On My Mind’.  Available on all digital platforms, her highly anticipated full-length features the single, Give You Up, Hurricanes, Chances, Friends and title track Still On My Mind

‘Still On My Mind’ is Dido’s 5th studio album and was written and recorded in England, a result of the fruitful and incredibly natural production/songwriting partnership with her long term collaborator and brother (faithless founder) Rollo.

It was simple, I only wanted to make another album if it was with him’ says Dido. ‘It was made in such an easy way, all the vocals recorded on the sofa, a lot of it recorded at homeIt follows the 2013 release of the acclaimed ‘Girl Who Got Away’.

‘Still On My Mind’ encapsulates a variety of styles and genres, ranging from her love of hip hop to her folk roots, but ultimately the entire record carries a dance and electronic music sensibility, even on the tracks with no beats.  At the core, it’s about the songs which capture the beautiful essence of Dido personally and emotionally.

On the album’s first official single, ‘Give You Up’ Dido said “It’s a good break up song, where you’ve been hurt but feel strong. It’s that point in a relationship where you are pulling yourself out of the gutter and deciding that it’s their loss.  Which I can totally relate to.”

With sales of more than 40 million albums worldwide, Dido is one of the best- selling UK artists ever.  Both ‘No Angel’ and its 2003 follow-up, ‘Life For Rent’, still rank among the UK’s biggest-selling albums of all-time.
