Dido

About

Dido Florian Cloud de Bounevialle O'Malley Armstrong (born 25 December 1971), known as Dido, is a British singer-songwriter. Dido attained international success with her debut album No Angel (1999). The album sold over 21 million copies worldwide, and won several awards; including the MTV Europe Music Award for Best New Act, two NRJ Awards for Best New Act and Best Album, and two Brit Awards for Best British Female and Best Album. Her next album Life for Rent (2003), continued her success with the hit singles "White Flag" and "Life for Rent".

Four years after the critically-acclaimed Safe Trip Home became Dido’s third platinum seller, taking her to an astonishing career total of 29 million albums sold worldwide, London-based recording artist and songwriter returns with her fourth album. And it’s no exaggeration to say that GIRL WHO GOT AWAY might just be her finest record yet.

Dido, one of the world's best-selling female recording artists of all time with over 29 million albums sold, returns with her strongest album yet entitled GIRL WHO GOT AWAY

Working once again with her brother Rollo Armstrong, who produced the majority of the album, Dido collaborated with a "who's who" of hit makers including Brian Eno, Jeff Bhasker, Rick Nowels and Greg Kurstin to create an album of finely, self-penned songs and soul-baring pop with electro, folk, hip hop, ambient and dance infusions.

The album GIRL WHO GOT AWAY is a captivating collection of well-crafted songs and stunning production: from the euphoric "Go Dreaming," to the barbed wit of End of Night, the folky "Sitting On The Roof Of The World" to the dance-y-yet-dark "Blackbir" to the album's title track which Dido shares: "It's one of my favorite songs on the record," she says. "...but I guess it also sums up the last few years for me. Taking a step back from it all and going off to have the whole happy adventure of starting a family and making an album that I really am so proud of. And now I just can't wait for people to hear it."

No Angel

Author:
Manufacturer: Sony Legacy
List Price:
Amazon - Buy New For: $0.98 | Used For: $0.01
More Info...
Editorial Review: Dido's debut is molded from Sarah McLachlan's intimate soul, Sinéad O'Connor's Celtic yelp, and Beth Orton's morose resolve--with all the sharp edges rounded out. Sculpted by producers Rollo (her brother) and techno-scientist Youth, No Angel is dream-pop mixed with Portishead-esque trip-hop; the results are midtempo ballads that would feel at home in Seal's neighborhood. The melancholy opener, "Here with Me," incorporates acoustic rhythm guitar, fluid strings, and a snare-driven tempo that simulates the slapping of rain off a windshield. "My Lover's Gone" is ethereal and misty, sounding at once ancient and modern with its synthesized ocean sounds and seagull cries. The only clunker is "Don't Think of Me," a passive, soft-bellied cousin to Alanis Morissette's "You Oughta Know." These songs play out beautifully in that quiet zone between slumber and consciousness--where you can see everything behind closed eyes. --Beth Massa
