‘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’
‘It was made in such an easy way, all the vocals recorded on the sofa, a lot of it recorded at home’.
It follows the 2013 release of the acclaimed ‘Girl Who Got Away’.
Dido describes the making of this new album as “an absolutely magical experience”.
“I wanted to capture the feeling I still get from listening to music, just that rush like you don’t need anything more than this”.
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.
